If you are a parent or caregiver who is worried that your family member with mental health conditions isn’t ready to accept their diagnoses and are not med compliant, there are resources in which to learn and better understand how to support your loved ones in their time of need. This panel discussion will focus on how to strategize support rather than enabling your loved one.

The panelists are:

* Dr. Andrew Gerber, Austen Riggs Center

* Judge Mark Pasquariello

* Jack Pepek, DMH Attorney

* Meg Czaja, Social Worker at Austen Riggs Center

* Kate Fitzpatrick, NAMI Family Member

Chris Haley, Berkshire Area Director of DMH will be moderating this free event. Light
refreshments will be provided. To register, visit https://helpinglovedone.eventbrite.com. Please register by Monday, November 27.
