What is your supportive role?

What is your most comfortable role when helping a family member who has a mental illness? This five-question survey will help you define your supportive style.

As you respond to each question, select the answer that best represents what you truly would do in the situation, not what you think you are supposed to do.

This survey was developed by author Linda Tashbook to accompany her book, Family Guide to Mental Illness and the Law: A Practical Handbook (Oxford University Press, 2019).
