Be of support to family members, and to family of choice, to enhance a better understanding of their person’s mental health challenge and/or addictions. So that no one feels alone. Family to us is whatever family is to you.
We chose the name All IN Family Peer Support because this definition resonated with us and so many family members we spoke to. All IN, in Webster’s Dictionary is defined as ‘tired, exhausted and fully committed to a purpose.’
Whether you are new on your family's journey of mental health or have been supporting a family member for years, All IN Family Peer Support might just be what you are looking for.
We understand that family members' mental health is not often thought about since the focus is on supporting the individual that is struggling. We talk about the parallel process and how each member of the family's mental health has an impact on the entire family. We support your family as a whole and explore with all of you what that support looks like. At All IN Family, our trained family peer support workers are there to support not only your own mental health but also the mental health of your family.
Every family in our community is living a life where they are thriving, feel supported and never feel alone.
Through the lens of lived experience of family members in relation to mental health and/or addictions, provide value-based peer support, workshops and education that build a community of understanding, acceptance and hope for family members while supporting their own wellbeing.
Family to us, is whatever family is to you.
At All IN Family, we believe family peer support is an essential service within the mental health and addiction sector, and with the need for more mental health resources in our country, why not look at peer support?

Guidelines for the Practice and Training of Peer Support
Family Peer Support
Peer support is a supportive relationship between people who have a lived experience in common. In this case, the experience that individuals or groups have in common is in relation to a mental health challenge or illness. This common experience might be related to their own mental health or that of a loved one.
Family-based peer support recognizes the struggle that members in a person’s circle of support experience in relation to the mental health challenge or illness of a loved one.
