I recently linked in with FASN and attended the 5 Step Programme. I found the programme to be educational and the facilitator to be very friendly, compassionate and understanding of my emotional, physical and material needs. I would highly recommend this programme. The new social norm is support groups. We learn that we do not have to struggle alone and try to figure it out ourselves. We can reach out and work together to find more positive solutions. It is up to us as individuals. We can leave the pain of the past behind and heal. I feel I would love to go on and volunteer in FASN as I feel I have a world of knowledge, a lot to contribute and would love to work to support others.

Family Support became my lifeline. Each week I couldn’t wait to get to my group. It became like my family. I was accepted, never criticized or judged for the way in which I handled situations. Thank you, Thank you Family Support.

I learned to look after myself and got new coping skills. It has brought me great peace, tolerance and freedom to let my family member take the consequences for the choices THEY make. Heartfelt thanks Family Support!

The people at FASN understood everything my family and I was going through simply because they had been there too. They gave me a glimmer of hope and so and I was so glad when I attended my first family support meeting.
