Family Caregiver Rights (Mental Health Law 101)
If your loved one was recently diagnosed with a mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, you are likely going to interact with mental health laws. This course provides you with a basic orientation about some of the main laws you may benefit from knowing, and an understanding of the various "forms" under the Mental Health Act.
Statutory Guardianship in Ontario
This course is for you if you want to learn more about whether your loved one needs a guardian of property, and how you can go about becoming one. It takes you through the steps to become guardian of property.
This course is also for you if the Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (PGT) is currently acting as guardian of property for your loved one, and you would like to take over as guardian.
Consent and Capacity Board: What Family Caregivers Need to Know (Mental Health Law Edition)
When family caregivers hear about the Consent and Capacity Board, it is usually amidst chaos and stress. There is hardly anywhere to go to find information about what is going to happen next. The psychiatrist knows. The patients speaks with a rights advisor. But often no one fills in the family caregiver, even though they are the main pillar of support.
Mental Health Law Course Bundle
This bundle is perfect for the family whose loved one is at the beginning of their interactions with the mental health system. Perhaps police have been called or their loved one has been on a Form 1. They want to know what may be coming down the road.

More About Lisa Feldstein Law Office PC
We are health lawyers in Ontario, Canada who help clients protect their families. We serve clients 1:1 and, frankly, it's not enough. It's difficult to have the level of impact we want. It's hard to help people who cannot afford a lawyer (being a caregiver can be expensive!). And sometimes people need legal information in 15 minute time-slots, or at three in the morning. We want to do better. Cue Kinkeeper™: an online platform we've created where family caregivers can come and learn practical information about health law on their own schedule, for the fraction of a price meeting a lawyer one-on-one. We are so excited about this platform and would love to hear your thoughts on what kinds of content we should create for you.
Stay tuned as later this year we will be announcing a membership for family caregivers who have a loved one with a mental illness. Want updates? Sign up for our waitlist here: https://docs.google.com/forms/...
We also plan to evolve this platform into a social enterprise that supports young caregivers.
