Discovering that you, a family member, or a friend has been diagnosed with anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or some other mental illness can be extremely difficult. Not only can this affect social interactions, it can also damage bonds that have taken years to forge.
With a recent study showing that about 20% of people have experienced some mental illness or the other in the past year, it is important to build the skills needed to handle these illnesses should we ever find ourselves or our loved ones battling them. Our Mental Health Skill Building activities help people with mental disorders navigate living with mental disorders, helping them improve their condition and gradually win back their lives. The Mental Health Skill Building services also equip families with the skills and knowledge required to support members with mental disorders.
Since mental disorders affect people differently and no one approach fits every individual, our approach for this service is highly dependent on the individual’s unique needs. The goal here is to help adults with mental illnesses achieve and maintain relationships, community stability, and independence, despite their diagnosis. We also provide life skills for adults with mental illness. So, contact us now.
