All are welcome to our programs (keeping in mind some are for a particular audience only). We are working on making our programs more accessible. Here’s how:
- If you have mobility issues, all our online content is available to you. As for our in person events, our office (for workshops and counselling) is wheelchair accessible.
- If you are Deaf or hard of hearing, Google Meet (which we use for workshops, support groups, and counselling) generates closed captions. And the same goes for our Facebook events.
- We are not dependent on a whole lot of visual aids in our programs, so if you have trouble seeing, or trouble being in front of a screen for a long time, you will get a lot out of our programs by just listening and/or talking.
- If you do not have access to the internet, it is possible to join our support groups by regular telephone. Our support groups are held via Google Meet, so give us a call at 514-486-1448 during regular business hours (9am-5pm) to ask about being added to our telephone list.
- We are currently working on holding some programs in person and some online. Our ultimate goal is a balance between the two so that we can best accommodate as many people as possible.
It is enough of a challenge to be a family caregiver or someone living with a mental illness. You shouldn’t have to also worry about accessibility to services. We are a small team, so we do what we can, but we are always looking to improve! If you have any ideas or comments, email email@example.com.
