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.

Events of interest to Families

CAMH’s Calendar of Events includes events of special interest to families and friends. CAMH’s Education Program provides opportunities for families to learn more about mental illness and addictions.

Family Resource Centre

The Family Resource Centres​ are located at 250 College Street, Room G21 and at 100 Stokes Street, Suite 1314.  The FRCs are open for limited hours Mondays-Thursdays and staffed by experienced volunteers who provide emotional support, understanding, education/information guides, coping strategies and opportunities to meet with other family members.

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.
