What we're about

***Until further notice, please reference our website, mhaohio.org/events (https://mhaohio.org/events/), for the most current information about support group services in light of the current public health crisis. Meetup.com is great, but your best reference for all our group schedules (and other programs) is here (https://mhaohio.org/events/). ***

For more than 30 years, our organization has been offering support groups for adults living with mental illness (and their loved ones). Available on a drop-in basis and free of charge, please check out a meeting anytime you can, and be ready to connect with others who have "been there" too. All groups are either facilitated by a mental health professional or a person with lived experience who completed our facilitator training.

Families In Touch has been helping families and friends of adults with mental illness since 1978. In a confidential group setting, participants are encouraged to share their experiences and learn about local mental health and recovery resources. Participants include friends, parents, spouses, adult children or adult siblings of older teens and adults who have been diagnosed with a mental illness. These illnesses include major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, etc. The groups are facilitated by mental health professionals who are experienced in dealing with the specific concerns of family members.

There are many benefits to becoming involved with Families In Touch. Participants can:

Speak openly about mental illness with others who have been affected.
Listen to what steps have worked for others.
Learn more about mental health services in the community.
Improve communication skills and become more effective with mental health professionals.
