Support Groups

FAME offers free monthly support groups across the GTA and Peel Region. These groups are for family members and caregivers who provide support to individuals experiencing a mental health concern. Support groups are an excellent way for caregivers to practice self-care, share with and learn from others with similar experiences and build a supportive community. Groups are in a drop-in format and are facilitated by FAME staff.
