Families as MotivatorsFamily As Motivators

A support group for those who care for someone with Hoarding Disorder

“Families are often at their wits’ end not knowing what to do, where to go and how to access experts to get advice how to manage the situation.”

Professor Michael Kyrios

This is a new support group program specifically designed for those who care for someone with Hoarding Disorder.

Over 10 weeks, members of the group learn how to identify when a hoarding habit has become Hoarding Disorder, how to effectively encourage their friend or family member to seek help and treatment, and how to ensure that caring for the person with Hoarding Disorder does not negatively impact their own health and well-being.

Venue: Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury Sydney Centre, 4 Park Avenue, Gordon. View Directions
