Well Ways Snapshot is a new program for families of people with a mental illness. It has been developed in response to demand from people who are 'time poor' - either due to the travel requirements of living in rural locations or due to work and life pressures.

Families come to the experience of having a family member with mental illness with the same limiting stigmas and fears as the general community.

Well Ways Snapshot aims to help families to have hope for their loved one and a more informed sense of what is needed to approach the recovery path ahead.

Well Ways Snapshot provides

  • An opportunity to share experiences, learn from others' experiences and develop ongoing support and information mechanisms
  • A simple framework to assist people to conceptualise the causes and recovery paths from mental illness
  • A clearer sense of hope for the future
  • A sense of 'can do' in relation to the recovery path ahead
