     A Voice for Change       

Family Advisory Council


The CDFSG was instrumental in establishing the Addiction & Mental Health Family Advisory Council at the Cornwall Community Hospital. As the voice of local family caregivers who are dealing with a mental illness, the Council advocates for enhancements to mental health policies and practices. Family members of the Council also sit on a wide range of hospital, regional and provincial working groups and patient & family advisory committees (pfacs).



The CDFSG is a member of the Ontario Family Caregivers Advisory Network (OFCAN). It is comprised of family groups with the shared goals of: enhancing mental health and addiction services; fostering the exchange of information between families and those involved in providing mental health and addiction care; and encouraging partnerships between family caregiver groups in this province.


Our members also sit at a number of other mental health tables, including:

  • Great River Ontario Health Team

  • Inpatient Working Group

  • Patient & Family Advisory Committee

  • ER Working Group

  • Essential Caregiver Partner Project

  • Clinical Research Advisory Group

  • Patient Portal Advisory Committee
