Caregiver Connections

Caregiving for a loved one with mental health concerns can be challenging, but you’re not alone. Caregiver Connections provides compassionate support and resources to help you navigate your caregiving journey. Caregiver Connection offers peer-to-peer support for those who care for loved ones with mental health challenges.

Caregiving has many faces, and no two caregiving journeys are the same. Whether you’re a parent, sibling, partner, or friend, if you’re caring for a loved one with mental health concerns, Caregiver Connections is here to provide you with the support and resources you need to navigate your unique journey. 

CMHA in Alberta, in partnership with the Government of Alberta, Ministry of Children’s Services, has developed a peer-to-peer family support program. Caregiver Connections provides peer support for parents and caregivers of individuals with mental health concerns. We provide peer support services in six Alberta Regions, offering compassionate support and specific information and resources.

Many parents and caregivers may be concerned about their child’s well-being or may have a difficult time coping with a mental health concern of a child or young adult. Parents and caregivers often wonder how best to parent and provide support. Families impacted by a mental health concern or diagnosis can find it particularly difficult to get the help they need.

Through Caregiver Connections, you’ll learn how best to care for yourself and your loved one, ask for help when needed, and set healthy boundaries. Our program is available in six Alberta regions, and our trained peers with lived experience are here to help you connect with others going through similar experiences, share stories, and learn from each other.

With the support of trained peers with lived experience, parents and caregivers will learn how to best take care of themselves, ask for help when necessary and learn about the importance of boundaries. It is a safe place to gather for shared stories, education, resources and support.
