Family Therapy

We know that family can be the key to helping a loved one manage mental health issues.  Having a person in your family experiencing these problems can be one of the most daunting and stressful challenges a family can face.  This is especially true of mood disorders, thought disorders, or substance abuse. Mainstream unites and strengthens families by helping to improve communication among family members, and by creating new patterns for engagement.  We provide the tools to make this happen, educate family members about how to use them, and create a plan for success.

Each family’s needs are unique and we work to customize an approach that can help lead your family to sustainable well-being.

Because of our strong belief in the value and importance of family involvement, Mainstream offers family services at the same rate as individual services.
