It's very common for people who have been in a relationship with someone who suffers from a mental illness to have put all their own needs into a box and stuffed it away out of sight while they fight the fires of relationship conflict.

Our Stepping Out for Women Programme is a course for women with adult or teenage children or another family member with mental illness.

Our sincere hope is that you will come away from this programme with:

  • A strong sense of purpose 
  • A clear understanding of your role in your family member's life
  • The ability to set limits that work for you and your family
  • A new understanding of how to look after yourself
  • The ability to be your own coach
  • Strategies for living a fulfilling and happy life

Note: PDF downloads require the free Adobe Reader application to view.
