Support groups offer a sharing moment between peers animated by one or two counsellors. It is not mandatory to have an individual follow-up to participate.
Our support groups take place every week with a total of eight meetings. Each week, the discussions have a different theme (ex: emotion management, triggers…). Those themes are chosen during the first meeting. It is possible to participate in several cohorts.
Before the pandemic, groups were composed with 8 to 10 people maximum and were taking place in the CLSC Metro. We’ve readapted that service since, considering the sanitary measures and the groups now take place by phone with 3 to 5 people maximum.
When the situation allows, we will return to the normal courses of the support’s groups. If it still required, we would keep the possibility to participate in the phone groups.
