Families Caring, Families Sharing is a support group for families with adults living with mental health issues. The group is facilitated by trained family members, who have a loved one living with mental illness.

  • Have behavioural issues and emotional needs due to their particular disorder
  • Require understanding and support from us

Our Families:

  • Can be from diverse religious and ethnic and cultural backgrounds, income levels, education levels, including non-traditional family units
  • All need information and support to better assist their family members
