The Women’s Peer Support group is a unique support group delivered by the Stigma-Free Society. The group is unique in that it consists of a small number of female participants who are generally 18+ who live with a mental health condition such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety and/or depression. You do not need an official diagnosis, and we are here for you if you have mental health concerns.
The Stigma-Free Society is committed to forming a group that represents the diversity of women in Victoria. We strongly encourage women of colour, women with disabilities, young mothers, First Nations women, women who identify within the LGBTQ2+ community, and women from all socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds to attend.
The group includes having conversations ranging from the topics of mental wellness, career building, self-care to coping strategies. The women’s group is a place of healing, where women can build friendships, work toward acceptance of their mental health and obtain support to manage their lives.
We meet at the Burnside Gorge Community Association: Group Room and Address: 471 Cecelia Rd, Victoria, BC V8T 4T4
