For Families & Caregivers

Families and caregivers who have a loved one experiencing mental health challenges often endure stress which impacts their own wellbeing. At AGATA Resource Centre we’re aware of the obstacles one can face when having to navigate, and support someone in their mental wellness. The goal of ARC’s Family & Caregiver Support Services is to equip families, and caregivers, with the education and resources to aid them in caring for themselves and their loved ones. Services are open to those who live in Scarborough and the GTA or loved ones who also live in those areas.


Mental Health 101

Talking about mental illness can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. These conversations are often the most important discussions to have. Our Mental Health 101 program provides an open table to voice any questions or concerns you might have about mental health conditions.

The Developing Mind

Early intervention can address the needs of children and families in children’s development and success in life. This program is designed for families and/or caregivers of children struggling with developmental, behavioural and social issues. We believe that Individuals, regardless of the degree of intellectual or physical ability, should enjoy the full rights of citizenship along with the full experience of community inclusion, such as access to community resources and services and the opportunities to contribute and participate with others.
