The Impact of Mental Health & Addiction on the Family

You’re invited for EHN Canada’s next educational webinar:

The Impact of Mental Health & Addiction on the Family
With Debbie Broessler,
Family Programs Facilitator, Edgewood Treatment Centre

When you love someone who has an addiction or struggles with their mental health, you develop your own ways to cope with the pain. Often, your life begins to revolve around helping them. It’s natural to want to help a loved one who is struggling. But, when caring for someone else negatively impacts your wellbeing, your selflessness can turn into codependency. If you over-support a family member or partner, you may grow resentful of the sacrifices you have to make, and begin to harbor unproductive feelings of resentment and anger that cause you to suffer further. It is vital to commit to the patients’ family’s success – after all, loved ones can help patients sustain their recovering during and after treatment. Join Debbie Broessler, Family Program Counsellor at Edgewood Treatment Centre, on Thursday, February 9 between 12-1pm EST as she further explains what codependency is and the support family members may need when their loved one is finished with treatment.


• Explore what codependency is and how it influences the treatment journey
• Review the three areas in which support networks are needing more assistance
• Discuss the four elements of selfcare
• Introduction to local treatment programs

Date: February 9, 2023 – 12pm ET, 9am PT
Duration: 1-hour (45-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute Q&A)
