The course is offered to participants at no cost. It is designed to help all family members understand and support their loved one living with mental illness, while maintaining their own well-being. The course includes information on illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression and other mental health conditions.

Thousands of families describe the program as life-changing, the press release said. The program is taught by trained teachers who are also family members and know what it is like to have a loved one living with mental illness.
