Who can come to this drop-in group?
The Canadian Mental Health Association’s (CMHA) drop-in peer-to-peer family support groups are for parents and caregivers of children or young adults experiencing a mental health concern.
Who is running the group?
CMHA is pleased to offer a quality peer-to-peer family support program in Lethbridge. The program offers compassionate support from a peer, who has “been there” as well as a CMHA staff member. Specific information and resources will be shared which will assist caregivers as they care for a loved one and care for themselves
What can a participant expect from the sessions?
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.
Parents and caregivers may attend as many sessions as they like with no registration or commitment to future sessions necessary.
Where and when does the group run?
Caregiver Connections is offered on a drop in basis weekly on Mondays from 10:30 am – Noon at Inclusion Lethbridge (427 6 St S, Lethbridge). To learn more about this group, please contact CMHA, ASR at 403.329.4775.
