Abstract: The research of families involved in the eleven week psycho-educational support group at Geelong Hospital Psychiatric Services will be discussed. A phenomenological research design was used. The presentation will involve discussion of the research findings and future direction regarding work with the family in an educational perspective. Families involved in this study had intense intimate contact with mental illness and numerous health care providers. Attendance at the psycho-educational groups produced positive changes and choices, their thoughts and beliefs directly affecting a positive change in quality of their life and the life of their family member with schizophrenia.
