Question Support Groups - Ottawa area.

Anybody aware of any support groups in the Ottawa area for recently
divorced men. The type of group that may meet once a week or
bi-wkly to discuss their ordeal in order to gain moral support and talk
matters out.??

I've not attended any of the ones listed on this link, so I cannot vouch for them:

While these are not specifically aimed at men, here are two local groups you could try:

You should take a look at http://justicefordads.com/
This is particularly aimed at divorce and dads in Ontario. You may find something on a couple of the links on there.

This group has been active for at least a decade:

I haven't been to a meeting recently.

Default Ottawa Men's Centre - Divorce Support Group

The only support group for dads that exists in Ottawa is the
OttawaMensCentre who provide support especially
to those father's who have just discovered their kids
are missing.

I remember contacting them when I came home to find
the kids gone, the house cleaned out etc.

It's a time when you need to be talking to someone of
the same gender who has already been through that grinder
and who can point you in the right direction and
the appropriate introductions and referrals.

Pierre 555, there are a few people here who have gone through that terrible experience. Do a search here, I believe there is a lot of relevant information here for you.
