Our Story

The FSN was created by 5 local families who saw a need for mental health education that empowered the families of those affected by mental illness to be stronger advocates for their loved ones. All FSN facilitators are family members and trained mental health professionals.

What We Do

The Family Mental Health Support Network (FSN) offers free workshops that focus on helping caregivers understand mental illness, treatments and what mental health services are available in the Niagara region.  The FSN also supports caregivers by teaching coping skills.

In Niagara, 20% of adults will experience a mental illness
at some point in their life and family and friends
will become their major caregivers.
