Q: I work for a large mental health organization/hospital and would like to use your curriculum. How do I access it?We are considering offering licensing options in the future, but for now we do not offer this.

Q: Do I need to be technologically savvy?All you need is an Internet connection, and the time to read and discuss the recovery materials available online. If you are comfortable with email, you will be able to figure out how to participate in this course. Also, if there are any questions at all, you can ask for support. We’re friendly!

Q: What makes this course special?

This curricula is rooted in the expertise of The Family Outreach and Response Program, the first mental health organization internationally to develop curricula for families offering an alternative perspective to the biomedical model of what gets diagnosed as mental illness. Not only is the curriculum unique in its family strengths-based recovery orientation, it is also unique in being a pioneer in creating safe, private online spaces where families, individuals in recovery, and mental health providers can come together as co-learners to explore the powerful concepts, feelings, questions, and challenges of mental health.

Q: Will I be able to apply the learning?

Survey responses from prior course participants show a measurable and positive shift in attitudes, behaviours and family culture as a result of participation in this course. Survey outcomes showed that participants experienced increases in:

  • Confidence communicating with family members in emotional distress
  • Capacity to manage personally challenging emotions
  • Ability to inspire hope within self and others
  • Understanding and empathizing with the mental distress experience
  • Feeling supported by peers
