Mental Health & Conflict
Mental health affects many American households, and conflict can arise regularly. What's your plan to address it? Unlike family therapy, a family mediator can provide conflict resolution services and help you craft plans everyone can live with to resolve the conflict.
Family mediators can offer a unique approach to your family's needs with the goal of
restoring your home and relationships.
Some mediators are trained to provide a safe and customized approach to resolving family conflicts surrounding mental health (Ie. teens, siblings, parents, extended family, and more).
You can unite family members to creatively identify mental health resources and a plan everyone can live with.
Work with neutral facilitators (mediators) with backgrounds in social work, child welfare, and life experience who can offer objective questions to help get your loved ones talking.
Mediators can be a fantastic resource for parents navigating divorce or family trauma and dealing with conflict resulting from mental illness.
Some mediators also offer supportive and restorative environments to work out individual or personal conflicts related to mental health.
Mediation supports empowering others to be responsible for their behaviors and decisions. Self-education can be helpful before a mediation session, including learning the role of caretakers and family support. We recommend Mental Health Education at Mindspring: https://www.mindspringhealth.org/
Mediation can include developing plans to support loved ones struggling with mental illness and caregivers as a component of working out family conflict.
