NO ONE WALKS ALONE, WE WALK WITH YOU
CAREGIVER CAFES TELL US WHAT YOU THINK!
The Mental Illness Caregivers Association of Canada (MICA) is an association of caregivers working together as volunteers to ensure awareness of and access to resources that provide meaningful support for themselves and lifelong care for their loved ones living with a mental illness. Caregivers have said they’d like us to organize events where they can take a break, get together, have fun, network and socialize. We are using the time of COVID-19 restrictions to do just that! But first we want to hear from you so that we can plan and offer you events that you’ll enjoy. Once we are able to get back together again in person, you might like the opportunity to mix and mingle with others and enjoy refreshments in a casual, friendly atmosphere, perhaps listen to live music, play some board games while finding out more about resources available to support you and your loved ones. We envision activities like that in regular Caregiver-Cafes but this is new for us, so that is why we would like your feedback on what is of interest to you. Please take the time to fill out the survey on this page so we can plan events you will enjoy.
SURVEY – CAREGIVER CAFÉ
We know how much you give to others – how about giving yourself a little time to get out, have some fun, and meet new people once we are able to get together in person again?
We want to know whether the idea of regular Caregiver Cafes appeals to you, what types of events you would like us to organize for you, the best time for you to attend these events and the best way to keep you in the loop.
Your answers to the 5 questions below will guide our planning. Thank you very much.
You’ll be supporting caregivers and their loved ones living with a mental health issue. Make a one-time donation, a regular donation, or consider donating in someone’s memory.
WE WALK WITH YOU!
