BCSS Teen Education Program – for teens who have a family member with mental illness

BC Schizophrenia Society will be offering a Teens in Control Workshop in Vancouver this January for youth ages 12 to 18 who have a family mental with mental illness. The workshop is a condensed version of the Teens in Control program which provides information about mental illness, coping strategies and self-care, to help youth understand and cope when someone in their family has a mental illness. It is also a chance for youth to connect with peers with similar experiences in a safe environment.

The workshop will be 2 sessions on Tuesdays, January 21 & 28, 2020 from 4:00-6:00pm. It will be held at the Renfrew Community Centre at 2929 East 22nd Ave, Vancouver. Please see the poster attached.
