Saturday, June 30, 2018

Intensive Family Support Services (IFSS) of Middlesex County Presents: “Developing Resilience”
Keynote Presenter: Robin Eubanks, PhD. See flyer.

 

Are you a family member, friend or caregiver of someone diagnosed with serious mental illness
who struggles to maintain your wellness in your caregiving role? This FREE conference will focus
on what you can do to remain optimistic, motivated, and resilient when coping with the illness of
your loved one. Resilience is a process, with gradual discovery of personal and unique abilities,
rather than a trait, or characteristic, and is vital to one’s wellness enhancement and maintenance.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn new methods to better manage your own stress, and recognize
opportunities during which you may build your resilience!

 

Conference Objectives:
 Present information on resilience
 Explore strategies that family members can utilize to reinforce their own psychological resilience
 Offer practical advice on how to effectively support a loved one with mental illness
 Provide a forum for family members and consumers to network

 

Family and Consumer Feedback Forum
Hear from a panel of family members and consumers as they discuss their stories of resilience,
their experiences of various challenges, lessons learned along the way, and their processes of successful
adaptation to life’s tasks in the face of numerous adverse conditions!

 

Seating is limited!


Please call IFSS at 732-235-6184 to register, not later than Wednesday June 27, 2018
~ Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided ~ Consumers are welcome to attend ~
