Family and Caregiver Supports
Programs for families and caregivers who are supporting someone with a mental illness
Suffering from a mental illness can make you feel helpless. Watching someone you care about suffer with mental illness can make you feel helpless too. Our supports can help you get off the sidelines and become an active participant in mental illness by empowering you with education, resources and an action plan to support those you care about to make informed decisions.
You are not alone, here are the programs we have to offer:
Family Support Group: English, Chinese, Farsi, Tamil and Urdu
Meeting monthly, this group assists families and caregivers to increase their knowledge, while connecting with others with a loved one with mental illness.
“From the first night I attended the Family and Caregiver Group I got a feeling from the support staff and other attendees that these people have lived through this and get what I feel. I didn’t have to try and explain the hardships of mental illness- they had also lived it- so they knew! I honestly felt supported for the first time ever!”
