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 following groups, please send a direct email to
firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com or call 705-790-5792 for more information.

Supporting a Loved One through Addiction
Supporting a loved one through addiction can be a long, difficult and often lonely journey. This group offers a safe and non-judgmental space for open
conversation to discuss, learn and cope with the struggles one might face when supporting their loved ones through addiction.
Topics include but are not limited to: supporting vs enabling, setting boundaries and goals, recognizing codependency, managing expectations, how being
focused on “fixing” our loved one can result in years of self-neglect and the importance of self-care, emotions and frustration when relapse occurs and
recognizing how relapse is often a part of the overall recovery process.
