Welcome to the Family Council

The Family Council: Empowerment for Families in Addictions and Mental Health, is a member-run, not-for-profit corporation dedicated to supporting the families of people in addictions and mental health.

“Family” describes people with a strong and emotional, psychological and/or economic commitment to one another – regardless of the nature of their relationship. “Family” can include those connected by biology, adoption, marriage or friendship. (Caring Together: Families as Partners in the Mental Health and Addiction System).

The 2012 Annual Report is now available online.
