The 1st Thursday and 3rd Thursday Blended Support Groups
Meetings have changed their format to one that has a quarterly public education program at each location instead of monthly. Program topics and details will be available in the running calendar below. On the months when no Public Education is being held at a location the meeting will consist only of a support group meeting. The support groups on the 1st Thursday and 3rd Thursday are Blended Peer Support Groups which means family members and users of services (sometimes referred to as clients, consumers, persons with the lived experience) are there together to give mutual support and encouragement.
