CMHA offers support groups in which people share their personal experiences in dealing with situations that have altered their life in some way. We believe that the best support groups foster peer leadership while providing information from experienced professionals who demonstrate empathy and an understanding of the challenges group members face.
Currently we have two drop-in groups. There is no fee for attending these groups which meet multiple times a month.
- Caregivers Connections is a drop in peer-to-peer group of people who are caring for a child or young adult (24 and under) with mental health concerns, including a mental health diagnosis, distressing mental health related challenges which may also include addiction. See http://reddeer.cmha.ca/programs-services/caregiver-connections/ for more information. Currently this group meets on Tuesday evening, except for the 5th Tuesday of the month, from 6-8 PM.
- Friendship Circle is a long-standing CMHA drop in peer-to-peer group that meets on Wednesday afternoons from 3-4:30 PM. People who have never attended a CMHA course should call 403-342-2266 and speak to CMHA educational staff before attending for the first time.See http://reddeer.cmha.ca/programs-services/friendship-circle/ for more information
CMHA support groups meet downtown at the CMHA Learning Annex.
