Support for caregivers of people with FASD.
Individuals with FASD can have a multitude of physical, cognitive, or psychological challenges as well as secondary disabilities. This can make caring for individuals with FASD challenging; many caregivers have difficulty supporting such individuals without support. To address these needs, we offer mentorship, teaching, and peer support groups.

People accessing Caregiver Support can expect six to twelve months of support. Services may include mentorship, caregiver skill-building, education on FASD and how it affects their loved one, and assistance making connections to community resources, cultural supports, and natural supports.
