For family and friends of someone living with mental illness only

These are interactive workshops and space is limited, even online–this gives our facilitators the chance to personally address your questions and concerns. They are not recorded and you must register in advance. If you register and do not attend, you may be taking a spot away from someone in need.

Write From Your Heart

Write from the Heart is a six-week writing workshop in which we use writing to express feelings and then share what we wrote with the group. The workshop provides a safe and welcoming space that promotes healing, support and empowerment through writing, reading our words and deep listening. It’s about self-expression, not being a good writer.

Starts March 30, 2023 and runs for 6 weeks

Aging Well With Mental Illness

Aging while living with mental health struggles or illness can present certain difficulties. Talking to peers with similar experiences can provide validation and compassion.

People living with mental illness age 55 years and over are welcome.

Caregivers 55+

Getting older while still having to take care of a loved one with mental health challenges can be difficult. In this three part workshop, practical information and coping strategies will be shared and explored; themes include making difficult choices, creating a circle of support, dealing with legal concerns, aging and self-care, grief, establishing boundaries, etc. Caregivers aged 55 years and over are welcome.

Meditation

How do we gain the strength to work with life situations that are difficult and stressful? Meditation is widely used today for stress reduction or to help cope with pain, anxiety, or depression. This workshop will use meditation to help participants get in touch with their unknown strengths and develop their resilience.

We are constantly evaluating and updating our programs. If you don’t see a program on this page that suits your needs, you can always find help at our regularly scheduled support groups or our counselling for family and friends. We also offer online learning.
