Parent Peer Support Group
In partnership with Parents Life Line Ontario (PLEO), the Robbie Dean Centre offers a monthly peer facilitated parent support group that meets on the first Tuesday of every month from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
This group meets at The Robbie Dean Centre in Pembroke which offers a safe and confidential environment to come and spend time with other parents who are raising youth struggling with mental health challenges.
It is a place to access resources, navigate the local support system, listen to others and share if wanted with people who will not judge you and understand what you are going through.
This group is also offered in Renfrew on the second Wednesday of every month through a partnership between PLEO and Addiction Treatment Services at 510 Raglan Street from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
Who is PLEO?
Parents’ Lifelines is a non-profit family support organisation for parents and caregivers whose children to age 24 are dealing with mental health and/or addiction challenges.
We are staffed with parents who also have supported their own children with these challenges – we have travelled this journey. We understand the challenges and the stresses on families but we also know there is hope, recovery is possible and we know first hand that parents and caregivers play a significant role.
Children and youth with good family support have better outcomes. Families also need support to be the supporters and advocates their children need. You have arrived at the right place to get that support and to learn more about navigating the mental health and addiction systems. Please explore this website to understand the services we can provide. You don’t need to feel alone.
