PLEO – Parents’ Lifeline is teaming up with Compass, Sudbury Catholic District School Board, Rainbow District School Board, Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon and Conseil scolaire public du Grand Nord de l’Ontario to offer even more support to parents of children and youth who are struggling with mental health challenges in the Sudbury and Manitoulin Districts
The virtual parent support sessions will start on February 16th and will run for five weeks. The sessions will consist of four groups – two in English and two in French with a maximum of 12 participants per group. Two Family Peer Supporters will facilitate the groups.

This year, families will not have the opportunity to celebrate Family Day in the traditional ways. We want to remind everyone to stay connected with your loved ones by phone or video chat and to spend time enjoying the outdoors with your family. Spending time outdoors not only improves your physical health but also your mental health and brings families closer together.
Please stay safe and continue following physical distancing guidelines.
Please note, Compass will be closed Monday, February 15th including mindSPACE and will re-open on Tuesday, February 16th, with its regular hours. If you require assistance, please call the Crisis Intervention Services at Health Sciences North at 1-877-847-1101.
