Many family members have no idea what is going on with a mentally ill relative and need help sorting out the multitude of mental health issues, problems and crises facing them as a family. Family-to-Family education classes give family members the tools and information they need to work with doctors, the community and their ill relative. The Family-to Family Workshops are held on 12 consecutive evenings once a week, at the Chester County Government Services Building . 610 Westtown Road, West Chester, PA 19382.
