The ‘F’ Word – Consumer Perspectives on Family Involvement in Mental Health Care (DVD)

The involvement of families in the treatment of adults experiencing mental health problems is now widely promoted as a key element in providing mental health services. Yet for family inclusion to have the best chance of working well for all parties, professionals need to be sensitive to the issues for consumers of having their family or friends participate in their care. This DVD explores the perspectives and personal experiences of four consumer advocates of family involvement in treatment. In a group and in one-on-one interviews these consumers describe the benefits of family inclusion, how family involvement can go wrong and the advice they would give to mental health professionals about how to constructively include families and friends in care.

This resource is suited to Mental health professionals.
