Support groups provide a safe and caring environment for individuals to share and support each other through common experiences. Through the company of peers, those suffering with a mood disorder will know they're not alone.
MDAM's support groups are facilitated by qualified staff members and volunteers who have personal experience with mental illness. In addition to our open support group which anyone can join, we offer a range of support groups by topic. Support groups usually run for 2 hours and are limited to about 10 people.
