SAPACCY provides services to African and Caribbean Canadian youth and their families who are dealing with problem substance use and mental health concerns. The SAPACCY team works from a cultural competence lens to help Black youth work through mental health and addiction concerns. Our programs offer mental health and addictions counselling and support in accessing resources to assist youth and their families/caregivers in reducing harm, moving toward recovery, and making the best choices for themselves and their family.
In order to draw on families’ experiences, support, and strength, the service offers a 5-week family support group. This group is open to all family members with Black Youths aged 14-24 (does not have to be a CAMH client) who are experiencing substance use and/or mental health concerns.
Sessions Topics Include:
Addiction Cycle for Users
Adaptation by the Family
Stages of Change
Strategies for coping
