Family Education

Please check this site again for another Family Education session in October

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. 

Think Recovery

Over the last several years, DMH’s Certified Peer Support Specialist Program has grown, and an amazing group of leaders are now working in the state’s mental health system helping others through their lived experiences.

Focusing on stories of recovery helps us all remember why we do what we do each and every day. These stories show the personal side of mental health and substance use. These stories also help break down barriers of misunderstanding and misconceptions. Please take a few minutes to watch one of these personal stories – Jake. He is an inspiration, and we thank him for sharing his story with us!​
