This webinar will introduce the Mental Health Caregiver Guide which was recently developed by Ottawa Public Health. In partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), the Mental Illness Caregivers Association (MICA), the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA), and Military Family Services (MFS), this bilingual resource was created to increase support of mental health caregivers and the individuals they care for. The guide aims to provide mental health caregivers with a deeper understanding of their roles and responsibilities with regards to caring for a child, youth, adult, or older adult living with mental illness or experiencing mental health challenges. Most importantly, this guide supports mental health caregivers to maintain their own wellbeing via practical activities designed to enhance their self-care. The guide has national applicability, is available in both official languages, and has been designed for use by caregivers, persons living with mental illness, and service providers.
