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. And when we do go back to in person events, both our office (for workshops and counselling) and our support groups (at the JGH) are 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.
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.
