.

The aim of the group is to provide a safe, confidential, nonjudgmental space to allow for sharing of information and to build a community of parents who share similar obstacles, experiences, and goals.

The sessions are open to everyone under Maamwesying’s catchment population.  There is also an option to attend via teleconference if preferred.  Lunch or snacks will be provided (dependent upon session timing)

Code of Conduct: As a support group, we will be under the same rules and obligations as other such caregiver groups (i.e. confidentiality and duty to report)
