Caregivers Connections is for anyone who is supporting someone with a mental health concern, illness or addiction. Formal diagnosis by a doctor is not required for caregivers to participate. It provides support to caregives from a peer — someone who has “been there” — who will share information and resources to assist families in achieving wellness for themselves in their journey supporting others.
Parents and caregivers can drop into this group when they need some extra support. A peer facilitator will guide the conversation according to the needs of the participants. Each week the group will have the opportunity to explore relevant Caregiver Connections materials as well as identify issues and ask questions relevant to their own experience. A CMHA staff member hosting the group will be able to connect people to resources in our community.
