Anxiety Support Group Needed

Does anyone know about an evening support group in or around Stoney Creek for people who have a spouse dealing with anxiety?  Thank you!

Hey Barb,

I believe the Hamilton "Mood Menders" group is open both to individuals experiencing mental health issues and their family members/supporters: https://www.mooddisorders.ca/event/hamilton-peer-support-group-mood-menders-support-group

Unfortunately I work during the day, so this doesn't work for me.  Are there any groups in the evening in Hamilton?

The problem with Mood menders is that it is in the early afternoon.  I had this problem when I was referred for CBT too - there was a ten month waiting period for sessions that weren't in the middle of the day and even then they began at five.  Luckily I work close by and my workplace let me leave a few minutes early on Tuesdays. Apparently having mental health challenges and working traditional nine-to-five hours are not mutually compatible.
