Upcoming Events:

“Understanding Schizophrenia; Symptoms Challenges”.   Friday May 10th at noon.

This event features a free luncheon for family caregivers and invited guests at the Oakview Terrace Reception Centre on Leslie Street in Richmond Hill. It will take place on Friday May 10th at noon in celebration of Mental Health Week. It is a follow up event to psychologist Dr. Lori Triano’s presentation on “Grieving the losses of those affected by serious mental illness”.  A panel of will answer questions about coping with stress and grief confronting those affected by serious mental illness. The panel will consist of Dr. Lori Triano, psychiatrist, Dr. David Dawson, and Markham Stouffville Hospital’s Certified Art Therapist/, Joanna Cheung. Joanna also holds a Masters Degree in Social Work and is a registered social worker. She works in the Outpatients’ Mental Health Department of the hospital.  The questions will be thoughtfully developed beforehand by the audience partipants who will consist of family caregivers, those living with serious mental illness, and emergency services personnel, who all comprise “the front line”.  Hopefully this experience will bring people together to acknowledge profound struggles, be inspired by each other and find strength.

An exhibit of the Art, created in our two Art Programs, will be on display and add to the ambiance of this event.

This event is free to family caregivers.  We respectfully ask mental health professionals and community members to pay $30 to cover costs.  Registrations and online payments at
