Where to Find Us

We are here to help, in communities across Eastern Ontario.

COVID-19 Stragegy – At PLEO, we are implementing precautionary measures to protect our staff, our clients and to do our part to help control the spread in our communities. Fortunately, we are able to continue our services with minimal interruption, but we will have to make a few changes to how we offer our support and come together as a community.

Until further notice:

All of our support groups will be hosted in an online video conference. This format may be new to some, and it will be new for our facilitators too, but we are confident it can be an effective way to gather, and safer given the current circumstances. To join, you will need a phone, computer, or tablet with an internet connection. Please see below as we add access codes to each group.

Our On-Site service will be transitioned to ‘Dedicated Stand-By’, whereby our Family Peer Supporters who would normally be onsite, will be standing by to speak with parents being referred by front-line staff, but will remain off-site.

Our Helpline remains available from 9am to 7pm Monday through Friday at 613.321.3211 or 855.775.7005

We like to meet parents where they are. We’re here for you on our Parents’ Helpline, in our monthly Parent Support Groups, and on-site at partner agencies. Below you’ll find the most up-to-date information about where and when to find us, and we’re also here at 613.321.3211 or 855.775.7005 for questions and guidance.

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.
