Yarmouth Bipolar Disorder & Schizophrenia Support Group 

               What can this support group do for you?
               Joining this group as soon as the diagnosis has been made is an important coping step.  Sharing with
               others can decrease the feelings of isolation and helplessness.  It is very important for the whole family
               to understand the illness in order to better support the family member who is ill.

It is a place for:
               1) support
               2) information              
               3) common experiences
               4) a place to be grounded

               The main goals of the group are:

               To provide emotional support and information to the families and those affected by the illnesses.

               To provide education and promote awareness about mental illnesses and help dispel myths and
               misconceptions that result in stigma.
