Care for the Caregiver


Mental Health Caregiver Guide

Are you supporting someone who is living with a mental health challenge or illness?

The Mental Health Caregiver Guide is a tool to support Canadian caregivers of children, youth, adults, and older adults facing mental illness or experiencing mental health challenges. Ottawa Public Health (OPH) has partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA), Military Family Services (MFS), and the Mental Illness Caregivers Association (MICA) to develop the national resource.

The guide provides valuable information and tools to learn how to take care of yourself so that you can remain healthy and reliable.
