Today, CMHA Brant Haldimand Norfolk joins individuals and organizations across the country in celebrating National Caregiver Day.
National Caregiver Day is intended to honour caregivers — the millions of parents, children, siblings, spouses and friends who provide unpaid care to support someone with a diminishing physical ability, a debilitating cognitive condition or a chronic life-limiting illness.
CMHA Ontario and branches around the province also provide programs and services to support mental wellness, such as BounceBack, counselling, information on stress management, and much more. Supports are also in place locally for family members with a loved one living with mental illness. Our monthly support groupFamilies Caring, Families Sharing provides information and caregiving strategies to help family members support their loved one, while recognizing the importance of self-care.
