The Role of Family in Mental Health Treatment and Recovery

When it comes to mental health treatment, there are so many different factors to consider. If you have a family member who’s currently in treatment, then this blog was written for you. Let’s go over some of the ways that you can support them and show them that you care about their mental health. 

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have further questions about supporting family members who are struggling with their mental health. At Avalon Malibu, we strongly believe in the importance of family support and would love to be part of your family’s journey.

Family’s Role in Mental Health Treatment

When it comes to discussing the family’s role in mental health treatment, there isn’t one uniform answer. Some families are more involved than others, whereas some families have no involvement at all. It’s all about what everyone feels comfortable with and what the person in treatment is willing to accept. However, there are a few ways that families can provide help…


This can look like a few different things depending on the situation. Some people in treatment like getting reminders to take their meds. Other people in treatment like their families to check in on them daily and ask how they’re doing. Providing accountability is something we strongly believe in at Avalon Malibu, so consider thinking about some ways that you can do this for your family member.


Providing support for your loved one can look like a few different things. For some people, helpful support means the ideas mentioned above. For others, it may mean giving them a ride to therapy or their doctor’s appointment. Thinking about creative ways that you can provide support can not only set your loved one up for success, but it can provide them with encouragement and show them just how much you care about their mental health situation.
