Caregiver Support

An increasing number of Canadians are supporting loved ones of all ages through a mental health challenge or illness. As a caregiver, it is ever more important to check in on your own mental health and get the support that you need, when you need it.  While it is common for caregivers to put the needs of others before their own, taking care of your own mental health can help avoid burnout, isolation, anxiety, or depression.  Make the time to learn how to care for yourself while caring for others.
