Mood Disorders Ottawa (MDO) Mutual Support Group
Mood Disorders Ottawa (MDO) is a peer-run volunteer non-profit organization that supports people with mood disorders and their loved ones. We believe that people have the best chance of regaining and maintaining their own wellness when they have access to a variety of approaches, meaningful experiences and supports that meet their unique needs. We offer mental health support programs and peer support services that aid people on their healing journeys and we educate the public about peer mental health recovery. We create opportunities for hope, learning, and human connections vital to the healing and growth process. In 2020 we offered our first outdoor program in local parks and green spaces: Awakening to Nature, which was a series of guided Nature & Forest Therapy walks.
