FASD Group of Ottawa

03 Jan, 2023 - 07 Jun, 2023

The FASD Group of Ottawa combines an opportunity for people with FASD, or suspected FASD, their caregivers and all those in their life circle, who are touched by FASD to receive support from peers and professionals. 

We have smaller, intimate breakout rooms for participants to safely share what is on their minds and what is their immediate concerns, as it relates to their day to day lives with FASD.  

As well, there are ongoing opportunities for formal education on topics related to FASD.  We have regular guest-speakers and also our FARP team experts who also teach/facilitate to help people with FASD and the people in their life circle to learn about FASD and support each person to live to their full potential. 

This is an open group.  We invite people with FASD or suspected FASD to attend, along with caregivers, extended family members, friends and professionals. This group is open to anyone who wants to seek more knowledge about FASD and to receive professional and peer support.  All are welcome. 

There is no cost to attend the group through the generous support of Health Nexus.
