What Is Hope for Recovery?
Hope for Recovery is a no-cost one-day workshop for both individuals living with mental illness and family, caregivers, and friends of individuals living with mental illness. Family-to-Family instructors, all of whom have loved ones who live with mental illness, teach the workshop. They are traveling this road too.
The workshop will give you a broad overview of mental illness and help you know what to expect, especially if you are in the early stages of your journey.
- General information about specific mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety
- What to do in a mental health crisis
- Tips for navigating the diagnostic assessment process
- Tips for managing the treatment and recovery process
- Communication skills
- Positive boundary setting
- And more
This workshop is an excellent first step in learning how to navigate the challenges of living with mental illness, whether the illness is your own or that of someone you love.
Hope for Recovery classes are taught at the NAMI Southwest Ohio office in Sharonville.
If you’re looking for more comprehensive information, we highly recommend our 12-week NAMI Family-to-Family class (for family members) or our 10-week NAMI Peer-to-Peer class (for individuals living with mental illness). Like Hope for Recovery, there is no cost to attend either class, but we do ask that you register so we can plan accordingly.
If you’re looking for support rather than educational information, we highly recommend you attend a NAMI Family Support Group (for family members) or a NAMI Connection Support Group (for individuals living with mental illness).
