Communication Course

You know the sorrow...

Although family and friends have good intentions, they might not fully "get it."

Friends may offer advice, but it might not always be useful.

Neighbors observe what's happening, sometimes prying into your affairs.

You might even feel judged within your own church community.

Experiencing a mental health crisis with your adult or teen child can be excruciating! You might grapple with confusion, struggle to cope, and feel lost about where to seek assistance. This can strain relationships within the family, might be overwhelming and unfamiliar.
