Find Help, Find Hope!

Principles of Support Groups

 Our Principles of Support for people diagnosed with a mental illness and

their adult family/friends:

  1. We see the individual first, not the illness.
  2. We recognize that mental illnesses are brain disorders.
  3. We aim for better coping skills
  4. We find strength in sharing experiences.
  5. We reject stigma in ourselves and others.
  6. We won’t judge anyone’s pain as less than our own.
  7. We forgive ourselves and reject guilt.
  8. We embrace humor as healthy.
  9. We accept that we cannot resolve all problems.
  10. We expect a better future in a realistic way.
  11. We will never give up hope.
