The Mind’s the Matter
Teens living with a parent or other family member with an OSI may need help learning how to cope. The Mind’s the Matter…Understanding a Family Member’s OSI offers a series of eight web-based, interactive videos specifically for teens. Through the videos, teens will learn about OSI and how having a family member with an OSI can affect their everyday family life. Topics range from communications skills to feelings, parental anger, teen depression, understanding changing family roles, dealing with angry thoughts and controlling angry behaviour.
