Safe Spaces Peer Support Program
Our Safe Spaces Peer Support Program aims to create a supportive space where individuals who share similar experiences can connect, learn from one another, and provide mutual understanding and acceptance.
|Call2Connect Program is an informal, one on one, program that’s all about, and all for, families and friends that support someone living with mental ill health and or alcohol or other drug use.
We call you to check in with how you’re traveling in your support role, offer referrals to other services and programs, and simply lend a compassionate ear…
Family & Friend Representative Program
MHFFTas exists to reduce stigma, educate and advocate for the experience and rights of mental health families and friends. One way to do this is by hearing directly from you, the support person.
Our advocacy work is – and will always – be guided by the lived experience of support people. We know you may feel your voice isn’t big, loud or strong enough. But you’re not alone. We want to hear from you. And we’ll support you. We’ll listen to your story. Your words. Your input. Your experience.
Are you ready to share your story?
Conversations with Families & Friends
Relevant and appropriate health information can be hard to come by. That’s why we hold these educational and informative sessions; to provide support people like you with the opportunity to connect with others while hearing from key speakers that have health expertise, knowledge, and experience that could help you to feel less isolated and more empowered.
