Friends for Mental Health – Counseling (psychological intervention)
Name of Organization – Program or Service: Friends for Mental Health – Counseling (psychological intervention)
Program or Service Description: Counseling (psychological intervention) – Counseling is intended to support the family and caregivers of someone with severe mental illness. We offer short to mid-term follow-up for families, couples and individuals (both adults and children) who are helping a person with mental illness. Our counsellors adapt their intervention to the specific needs of our families and their situations.

Counseling helps to establish and preserve the emotional and psychosocial balance of the family, and promote greater stability and autonomy for the ill person. This allows families to deal with their situation in a healthy way and overcome the disorganization that results from a lifestyle centered on the illness of a loved one.
