While mental health support is essential for anyone with a mental illness, it is often forgotten for the families of patients in treatment. To understand how family participation can drive better outcomes for patients, join Lightfully Behavioral Health’s first Continuing Education Webinar, Lighting the Way Home: Family Involvement in the Comprehensive Treatment of Mental Health Disorders.
In this 90-minute webinar worth 1.5 CE credits, you’ll learn to:

- Demonstrate skills in validation and providing emotional and practical support to loved ones with mental health disorders.
- Identify barriers and caregiver traps in providing support to loved ones with mental health disorders.
