You may or may not already be familiar with some of the Peer Support Services at CMHA. We offer groups facilitated virtually from a place of lived experience and inclusivity. If you are interested in attending any of the groups, please send a direct email to
email@example.com to request the Zoom link.
With the belief that human connection can serve as one of the most powerful tools in recovery and healing, this support service embodies a mutual
understanding of expectations, self-empowerment, self-awareness and accountability. Grounded in self-determination, hope for the future, and a holistic
approach to wellness, Peer Support is free from judgement, as together we will navigate your individual journey of healing. Peer support is not about
focusing on the illness or disability but instead works with your ability to make conscious choices about how you choose to better your whole health and
Peer Support Services at CMHA can also be offered individually outside of a group setting. If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health
recovery and or addiction challenges, please connect with us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 705-790-5792 for more information.

OCD Support Group
What is OCD?
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common, chronic, and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts
(obsessions) and/or behaviours (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over. Led from a place of lived experience, this session is being
offered to anyone who lives with OCD or is supporting someone struggling with OCD. This will be a 1-hour session with the intention of creating a safe
space to share and listen. We will discuss stories, coping strategies and techniques.
