AMI-Quebec offers a wide menu of programs and activities to help you better cope with the challenges of mental illness in your family. Some programs are for caregivers only, others are mixed and welcome both caregivers and individuals with a lived experience of mental illness. Many of our programs are available across Quebec (via telephone or internet). Some programs are available in Montreal only.
Support groups do not require registration, but many workshops do, and participation is on a first-come, first-served basis. This section of our website details our various programs and how to access them. Please click on the blue links below for more information. In many cases you can determine what’s the right program for you and register on your own (using the registration forms on program pages or by calling us at 514-486-1448).
