This situation has challenged SGCT especially in meeting the specific needs of SNT. This raises questions regarding the involvement of SGCT in providing guidance and counselling services especially to SNT as well as challenges faced in implementing such services. Therefore, a qualitative study has been conducted to answer the questions. This study involved six SGCT who serve in schools that adopt the Integrated Special Education Program or the Inclusive Education Program. Semi-structured interview questions have been used to obtain relevant information. The finding of this study shows that there are direct and indirect SGCT's involvements with SNT. While the challenges that GBKS face in carrying out guidance and counselling services are divided into three themes, namely the challenges characterized by SGCT, challenges characterized by SNT and challenges characterized by the Organization. The findings of this study can provide information on the implementation of guidance and counselling services to SNT and can be used as an improvement of the existing guidelines to increase the involvement of SGCT in providing guidance and counselling services especially to SNT.

Family plays an important role in maintaining and treating a psychotic mental patient in society. Treatment and family support are believed to accelerate the recovery of ex-psychotic mental patients. However, families often face psychosocial problems either directly or indirectly because they have family members who are psychotic. Psychosocial problems include anxiety, stress, loss of hope, loss of sense, shame and guilt. Families are also experiencing financial problems, disruptions in social activity, and physical health damage. Therefore psychoeducation for families with family members who have psychotic mental illnesses is considered very important to improve the quality of life of former mental patients.
