Supporting Family Members of Loved Ones with Serious Mental Illnesses

< Back to All Resources

SAMHSA supports families in a variety of ways. We develop and disseminate evidence-based practices that help families and their loved ones learn more about mental illness, treatment, and recovery. We support early intervention to treatment, which can change the course of an individual’s life and provide a future that is purposeful and filled with possibilities. Through SAMHSA’s Statewide Family Networks, we help improve community-based services for children and adolescents with mental health challenges and their families. SAMHSA also supports multiple programs that increase access to care.
