Though the patient remains the primary focus throughout the hospital stay, family members of the patient play a crucial role in the patient’s healing process and in helping them to maintain independent living in the community following a hospital stay.
The purpose of this project is to provide family members of individuals hospitalized with information regarding mental illness that is concise and easy to understand. The information will also include resources and supports for family members as they continue to support their loved one.
