On October 18, 2018 Dunham House in partnership with AMI-Quebec hosted their first Family Day event. This day was filled with a variety of activities aimed at providing support and resources for family members and caregivers who have been affected by substance use and concurrent mental health disorders.
We were able to help and support 4 families and 8 individuals through discussion groups and strategies (communication, understanding substance use, and mental health disorders) as well as available resources for caregivers and family members to take care of their own well-being.
Our first event was a success and we look forward to seeing more families take part next year!
