CMHA Peer Support Group Tuesdays from 10:30 – 12:00 AND Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.
This drop-in online peer support group is one in which people get together to share the recovery journey and all the common struggles, opportunities and experiences associated with it. It is not meant to be a treatment or therapy group, but rather a space for participants to talk with others with similar experiences. It is a confidential and non-judgmental space where people are free to share deeply personal insights, experiences and challenges that come from firsthand experience of living with mental health challenges.
CMHA “Taking Care in Isolation” Group – Wednesdays from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
This group is an online peer group created during the pandemic to offer a platform for clients to explore the many feelings associated with this difficult time. It is a facilitator guided workshop with slides addressing various issues in helping to provide information, resources, encourage clients to reflect and feel safe to talk about and share their feelings.
