Caregiver Connections Many parents and caregivers may be concerned about their child’s well-being, or may have a difficult time coping with a mental health concern of a child or young adult. Parents and caregivers often wonder how best to parent and provide support. Families impacted by a mental health concern or diagnosis can find it particularly difficult to get the help they need.

With the support of trained peers with lived experience, parents and caregivers will learn how to best take care of themselves, ask for help when necessary and learn about the importance of boundaries. It is a safe place to gather together for shared stories, networking, education, resources, and support. For more information please visit: http://reddeer.cmha.ca/ caregiver-connections/. To learn more, please call 403-342-2266 or email education(at)reddeer.cmha.ab.ca. The support group is held at 4911 – 51 Street, Suite 404, Red Deer, AB  T4N 6V4.
