Men's and Women's Groups

CFM provides Men's and Women's Groups  and Training  at our Brookfield and Seventeen Mile Community Centres. Men and women who have attended counselling are encouraged to attend groups to facilitate their growth and development. These sessions build upon the one-to-one sessions and allow the men and women to interact and open up to and with community. These also assist to get help from other men and women and provide a support network for each other and prevent relapse.

Typical groups include:

  • Men's Jouney
  • Women's Jouney
  • Addictions
  • Anger management
  • Communication skills
  • Accountability
  • Friendship
  • Meditation (anxiety control)
  • Five day external camp programs (Men's Rites of Passage)
  • Weekend Father and Son camps
  • One-to-one long term mentoring and support for men and women

Community Breakfasts

Our quarterly breakfasts help to promote family health issues, such as grief, anger and depression, in the community while also providing a necessary support network for men in crisis to seek help and assistance. Many of the men who attend our community meals have overcome abuse or addictive behaviour. ) (More)
