Caring for the Caregivers Conference
As a proven leader in mental health care service delivery, Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare’s Mental Health and Addiction (MH&A) Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) in collaboration with the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Windsor and WE SPARK Health Institute conducted a community needs assessment in Fall of 2020 and Winter of 2021. This assessment asked caregivers to an adult with mental illness and/or addictions what they need in way of supports, connection and wellness to ensure that they themselves remain healthy in this critical role.
From the assessment came very important and insightful data shared from this often unrecognized group.
Together, our teams are using this important information to inform a free two, half-day virtual conference for caregivers to adult loved-ones living with mental illness or addictions in Windsor/Essex taking place October 16 and October 23rd from 9 am – 1 pm.
