The Family Interest Group is providing an information session for family and youth workers about the First Response for Families program. Janice Florent and Keryn Super from Link Health and Community will be presenting this program that has been delivered to many families previously.
First Response for Families Program is a 3hr psychoeducational brief intervention group program targeting families who are not yet ready for counselling; are not sure what type of support they need and/or don't know how to manage or navigate the drug and alcohol or mental health service systems.
FIrst Respone for Families offers information to families about the two sectors, what we do, what supports can be offered as well as space to explore family issues. Janice and Keryn will take FIG participants through the module to demonstrate how you can respond to families yourself/and or consider organising a First Respopnse for Families forum for your family and youth clients.
