Support for Family and Friends

At CAMH, we use the word “family” broadly, meaning a relative, partner, close friend or supportive person. CAMH provides a variety of programs and services for families of people with mental health and/or substance use disorders. Unless indicated otherwise, these services are open to families beyond CAMH.

Support Groups for Families

CAMH offers a number of support and education groups for families at our various sites, tailored to the nature of the loved one’s illness.

Family Centre

Families can visit the Family Resource Centre within the Office of Family Engagement to find information about mental health and addiction, important links to the hospital and the community, borrow books, use a computer, relax and let children play in a safe space. The Family Centre is located at the northeast corner of Stokes Street and Lower Ossington on the Queen Street site. For more information, click here, e-mail or call 416 535-8501, ext. 33202.

Information and booklets for clients, families and friends

Access to accurate, reliable and impartial information is critical to cope, to be able to make informed decisions around care, treatment and recovery, and to reduce the stigma associated with addiction and mental health issues.
