Welcome to Psychosis Support

This website provides information and peer support for family members who have a loved one who suffers from a serious mental illness.  You will find suggestions and strategies that were helpful in promoting a significant recovery for my daughter who has lived with Schizophrenia for the past sixteen years. The primary focus of the site is  caretaking; however you will also find basic information on several major mental disorders, plus links to respected sources for more in-depth information.
Mental illness can be devastating for families.
"Hope and clarity can ease the caregiving burden and contribute to successful outcomes" MJS.
