Family Information Series: Addiction and the Family

St Patrick's Mental Health Services (SPMHS) is hosting the third webinar in our family information series at 7.30pm on 14 December.

The next webinar in our Mental Health Recovery: A Family Perspective series focuses on Addiction and the Family. Linda Curran, Social Work Team Leader in SPMHS, will present this topic exploring how addiction impacts not only the person, but the whole family.

It has long been recognised that people in recovery benefit greatly from the support of their family and friends. This lecture will help family members recognise the signs of addiction, provide some tips on helpful communication, and outline available supports for family members and carers.

Registration is free but essential.

Register your place at the third lecture here.

Please note that this event replaces the webinar of An Overview on Eating Distress, which will be rescheduled for a date in January 2022.
