Mood Disorders Ottawa

MDO is a registered nonprofit, volunteer-run organization 
that supports people with mood disorders and their loved ones.

Welcome to Mood Disorders Ottawa.
Join us to talk or listen at a Peer Support Group, for fun at a Discovery2000 event, to learn at Speakers Night, and for your recovery journey in one of our programs.
You are not alone. 


As a result of the CMHA move, we will temporarily be holding Peer Support Groups at the Ottawa Public Library, Sunnyside Branch. It's at 1049 Bank Street across the Canal Bridge from Landsdowne Park.

New temporary meeting time is 7:00pm-8:30pm.

For all other programs, please contact your facilitators for new location details.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and for bearing with us during this transition period!

Our host, CMHA, is moving in the fall ... and we are moving with them! 
Our future address: 311 McArthur Ave (bus route #14).
The move is happening the end of October.  Please check the website calendar and with your facilitator for meeting locations during the move (21Oct-1Nov).  We expect to be fully functioning in the new location by the end of November.
