Group Name: Mood Disorders Association of Ontario – Family Matters Peer Support & Recovery Program
Description: The Mood Disorders Association of Ontario offers free support and recovery programs to people across Ontario living with depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder. They provide drop-in peer support groups, recovery programs, family and youth clinical support, early intervention for mood disorders and psychosis and online tools focused on wellness and recovery.
While family members and caregivers are essential to the support team when addressing the needs of a loved one with mental health and addiction challenges, very often family members become in need of services and supports themselves. This new program will continue to adhere to the individual peer support and recovery work that MDAO does best while expanding upon and strengthening services in the following areas:
- Counselling support services for family members and individuals challenged with mood disorders and complex mental health needs
- Educational resources for family members
- Recovery programs for family members
- Peer support groups
- One-on-one family peer support
- Psycho-educational programs
- System navigation
