Pro Famille

Profamilleis a psychoeducation programme for close family members of patients suffering from schizophrenia.

By offering a 2-year training, including 14 sessions in the first year, ProFamille provides knowledge about the disease, but also learns to better manage stress and crisis situations, and, to better communicate with the loved one, through role-playing and exercises.

Profamille improves the quality of life and health of the patient and its family.

Created in Canada in 1987, the programme now counts more than 70 teams in French-speaking countries.
