Adfam has received funding from the Dulverton Trust to run a project for family members affected by a loved one’s ‘dual diagnosis’ (substance use and mental ill-health) in Sunderland.
From Thursday 27 February 2020, Adfam will be organising a monthly group in Sunderland for those affected by someone else's substance use and mental ill-health, with a mixed focus on support, advocacy and research.
The group will offer:
- Support and learning opportunities
- Creative activities to help improve wellbeing
- Activities to help families express themselves
- Opportunity to contribute to research and influence locally for improved support and provision
