Support Groups

AMI-Québec’s support groups provide a warm welcome to everyone. There are support groups for family caregivers only, for those suffering from mental illness, and mixed groups for both. Support groups help participants feel less alone and better understand and cope with the implications of mental illness on their everyday life. Facilitated by people who have experience, either as a caregiver or having lived with mental illness, support groups help you develop a healthy perspective on mental illness, explore coping strategies and learn about support services and resources in the community.

Certain family interventions have been shown to improve patient functioning and even delay or prevent a relapse. Support groups have proven to be a beacon of light during times of crisis.

We have support groups for: 

Anxiety (open to family, friends, and people living with mental illness)
Bipolar Disorder (open to family, friends, and people living with mental illness)
Depression (open to family, friends, and people living with mental illness)
