AMI-Québec’s support groups provide a warm welcome to everyone. There are support groups for family caregivers only, for those suffering from mental illness, and mixed groups for both. Support groups help participants feel less alone and better understand and cope with the implications of mental illness on their everyday life.
Facilitated by people who have experience, either as a caregiver or having lived with mental illness, support groups help you develop a healthy perspective on mental illness, explore coping strategies, and learn about support services and resources in the community.
All groups are for adults only (18+) and are offered free of charge. Support groups are predominantly conducted in English but discussion can be bilingual.
Support groups are taking place online by video conference.
