Why do we feel so alone in the challenges with mental illness and marriage? How do we navigate marriage and family when the typical marriage resources don't really understand our situation?
In this webinar, hosts Joe Padilla and Natalie Franks discuss their separate personal experiences from each of their marriages and families and providing helpful dialogue to look at:
1. The personal barriers we face with mental illness in marriage and a freedom to be unique and patient.
2. Tips and tricks to make marriage work personally and for each other. "The foundation for a healthy relationship is having good self-awareness." How to have helpful communication about the signs, symptoms, cycles, and moving from expectations to empowerment.
3. Helpful ideas to understand that it is not a full focus for the loved-one with a mental health concern, but a full focus for a "togetherness" journey. Taking the time to learn your own personal grace and pace for your marriage and family.
