An agreement between Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Vernon & District and the Mental Illness Family Support Centre (MIFSC) is ensuring a full scope of family support services will continue for Vernon and area families.
For nearly 20 years, MIFSC has provided vital supports for families of individuals diagnosed with a mental illness.
Earlier this year, the MIFSC Board of Directors and its membership voted to dissolve the organization, with CMHA Vernon agreeing to operate its programs and services for families in Vernon and area.
All MIFSC programs and services will continue to operate under CMHA, including Kids in Control, Farm Friends, group and educational sessions, and one on one support. The family support office will continue to run its services out of The People Place.
