If you are supporting a loved one who is struggling with their mental health or substance use, you are not alone!

Together, we have partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association of Manitoba to offer Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT).

The aim of this program is to provide education, empowerment, and hope by developing positive and supportive ways of interacting with your loved one. CRAFT is an approach for families who have a loved one struggling with mental health and substances.

Problematic substance use and addiction can have a significant impact on families and loved ones. Families often need education and support to protect their well-being and develop an understanding how to support their loved one throughout the recovery process. A variety of family resources and supports are available including:

Family Education: sessions on a range of topics are offered to help family members and loved ones understand addiction cycles, the impact on family and relationships, coping through crisis, boundaries and communication, and recovery management for families.

Family Peer Support: in-person and virtual support groups are facilitated by and for families who are supporting a loved one with a substance use issue. Family Peer support groups offer an opportunity to feel less isolated during such challenging times. They strengthen social support with others experiencing similar challenges and enable development of tangible self-care strategies in order to minimize caregiver burnout.
