Resources for Families

Mental health disorders often impact the entire family of the individual suffering. Whether your loved one is already in treatment, or needs encouragement in taking the first step toward seeking help, David Lawrence Center is here.

Coming soon, DLC will offer support groups for family members of adults with mental health disorders that will provide emotional guidance and a safe place to share their experiences with others. For more information about these upcoming support groups, please contact us at
