Family Counseling Unit
Families with a loved one with mental illness experience a lot of guilt, shame and a sense of hopelessness in their lives due to lack of awareness of the causes of the illness and the understanding of how to cope with it. They undergo different kinds of stress. The pressure from the family, relatives, friends and society is immense and needs to be dealt with in order to be able to support the recovery of the loved one with mental illness and themselves. Sambandh extends its services to families and caregivers to be able to cope up with stress and burnout situations. An experienced counsellor speaks to the family members who seek help, individually to support them in their care giving role.
