Family Education

Family members of our current patients are invited to a Family Education session on Sunday, January 28, 2018, at 2:30 p.m., immediately following patient visitation.

These sessions give family members a chance to interact with some of our staff to learn more about mental health and SMSH.

The sessions are general in nature and do not address issues specific to your patient due to privacy.  Usually, two or three members of our staff are involved.  Information presented could range from a specific topic to a general question and answer session.  The meeting generally lasts 45 minutes to an hour.  Please RSVP to your patient's social worker or to 601-794-0219 if you would like to attend.

Specific patient information should be addressed with your patient's social worker or at a separate individual family conference scheduled through your patient's social worker and/or doctor.
