You focus on your client while we support their
family members

Treatment for severe mental illness is more successful when it includes family psychosocial support. Studies of similar programs have shown a 40% reduction in relapse resulting in hospital readmission1 and improvements in treatment engagement2.

In their own words

What our families say

It was helpful to hear that someone has been where I am now. Hearing that your loved ones are living productive lives has given me hope for my daughter.
Akin has really been a place to educate myself. To feel empowered and get support by other family members. To know that I’m not alone in this means the world to me. I really am so thankful to have this for myself.
Very informative and really eye opening. I’ve definitely told my sister that she’s being dramatic, etc before and that lesson made me realize how important it is to listen and allow people to let things out.
