Family Matters Peer Support and Recovery Program

Family Matters Peer Support and Recovery Program

The Mood Disorder Association of Ontario has developed a comprehensive support program for family members who are experiencing the complex challenges associated with providing and receiving care to those living with mood disorders and/or addictions.

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:

  • Clinical support services for family members between the ages of 16 – 65 challenged with complex mental health and addiction 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
  • Support networks
  • Community outreach
