NEXT STEPS

  • A second change process occurred and during this process the Family Psycho-education Group was moved to Saturdays to accommodate family schedules; lunch and raffles were provided as an incentive.

  • Monthly Family Events (i.e. Holidays, picnics, etc.) began to be held in order to involve all members of the participants family and improve family program involvement.

  • As a result of the Change Process the program staff have not only been able to sustain the changes but integrated them into the culture of the program.
