Families affect and are influenced by the recovery experiences of children, youth, and adults with mental or substance use disorders. As caregivers, navigators, and allies, family members play diverse roles and may require a variety of supports.
Families and family-run organizations are vital components of recovery-oriented service systems. Family members train and support other families—sharing lived experiences and insights that instill hope, increase understanding, and contribute to systems transformation.
Bringing Recovery Supports to Scale Technical Assistance Center Strategy (BRSS TACS) partners with the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health (NFFCMH), the National Family Dialogue on Substance Use Disorders, and others to support families of children, youth, and adults with behavioral health needs.
Don’t struggle alone.
