Young Carers

 

Young Carers Support Groups

Are you a youth aged 16 to 24 who supports a loved one with a mental health issue? You’re not alone.

Our support groups are confidential and provide good opportunities for peer support. Learn from the experiences of youth in similar situations. These drop-in groups meet once every two months.

Maybe you support a friend, partner or family member with a mental health concern. We welcome and encourage all young people to come learn and share in an empowering, peer-supportive environment. Explore the areas of advocacy, self-care and wellness in a safe and open environment.
