Family Support Group

All family members, caregivers, and friends of people with psychosis in the Lynx Program are invited to join us at our regularly scheduled Lynx Family Education and Support Meetings. It’s a very casual and comfortable setting and there is no cost or obligation associated with attending. The group is facilitated by our team members and an experienced family member.
