B.R.I.D.G.E.S. Education & Support Program

BRIDGES is a course offered by the BC Schizophrenia Society that helps support individuals on their journey to recovery. There are three types of courses through which students have the opportunity to learn about psychiatric diagnoses, which mental health treatments work best, and self-help. The courses are also a good opportunity for students to benefit from peer support.

The three courses offered are:

10 session, 2.5 h. For people living with a mental illness

5 session, 1 h. For people in hospitals, residential treatment or jails

Support group based on BRIDGES principles and information

For more information of each of those courses and to find out if one is nearby, please contact Debbie Sesula at 604-733-5812 or visit http://www.bcss.org/2007/05/programs/bridges-education-and-support-program/
