Each session has a brief accompanying video presentation. In the videos, people living with mental illness, family members, and service providers address different issues discussed in the sessions. Facilitators can watch the videos in advance, then plan how to use them during the session. For example, a video might be used as a way to initiate discussion or to end a session. Facilitators can also choose not to use all the video presentations below.
