As Pleo spaces are those of support, we believe transparency is important. This page outlines how Pleo communicates with the public using social media. Our social media accounts are as follows, and are managed by our part-time Communications Coordinator: 

Availability and monitoring 

We update and monitor our accounts Mondays 8am-4pm EST and Tuesdays 8am-12pm EST. Any messages or questions we receive via our social media channels outside of our regular business hours will be reviewed the following Monday. If you require immediate assistance, please contact info@pleo.on.ca. If you need support, please call our Parents’ Helpline 613.321.3211, 855.775.7005  

Our social media commenting guidelines

Please follow the general rules of respectful civil discourse. To protect your privacy and the privacy of others, please do not include personal information such as your phone number, home address, or email address in the body of your comment.

Following, liking, and sharing

Please be respectful and mindful of Pleo spaces being those of support for families navigating sensitive situations. If you have any questions about our service standards or how we apply them, please contact hillary[at]pleo.on.ca.  

To realize the full benefits of caregiving, it is crucial that caregivers have access to the information and supports they need to sustain their own wellbeing, and that their voices are recognized and respected in Canada’s mental health system. Failure to support caregivers undermines mental health across the entire population, leading to poorer outcomes, both for the people living with a mental illness and their caregivers. This also leads to increased health and social service costs.
