Caregiver Mental Health banner

Caregiving can sometimes lead to feelings of stress, anxiety, and burnout. In more challenging situations,
caregivers may also notice post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from their experiences. How can caregivers find support for their mental health?

The OCO welcomes back Dr. Patrick McGrath to answer important questions that caregivers have shared with us.

  • Submit your question about mental health in advance
  • Gain useful tips and strategies on how to manage your mental health
  • Learn what services or tools are available to support your mental health needs

Our Speaker: Dr. Patrick McGrath is a clinical psychologist and Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at Dalhousie University and a scientist at the IWK Health Centre where his research is based. He is an Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Ottawa and founder and president of 90Second Health Letters. He frequently treats caregivers with anxiety in his private practice.

Note: We encourage caregivers to share questions when filling out the Eventbrite registration. The OCO endeavors to answer as many questions as possible, but some questions may not be answered due to time limitations.
