Update 09/02/2020: At this current time, all our COVID-19 Support Groups have ended. We thank our community for their interest and participation in our groups. You can check our resource page occasionally for other support groups in the community.
Taking care of your mental health is more important now than ever. Life hasn’t paused because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and now you might also be dealing with increased anxiety, the impact of social distancing, and struggles with self-care (on top of the challenges you were already navigating). We also know feeling isolated can take a major toll on your overall well-being.
We want to invite you to join our counsellors in a free support group. Our hope is to help you connect with others in the community who are also struggling, get some new and creative ideas for coping, and reduce some of the isolation you might be experiencing.

Mental Health Practitioners Canada Wide: We are sharing all our info for free to promote the widespread adoption of free group support during the pandemic response.
There is a deep well of wisdom and empathy to draw from when meeting with a group of people who are also struggling. Simply hearing “me too” lets us know that we are not alone in our experiences.

To continue providing free support groups to our community while remaining sustainable, we are accepting donations. 100% of the donations will be prioritized, first, to help fund the resources needed to host the groups. Any additional donations that exceed this need will help us expand our sliding scale for individual counselling.
