SHRC launches 2016-2020 strategic plan
START A GROUP
We provide highly interactive and engaging training workshops to help organizations tap into the power of peer support. Whether you’re a corporation looking to improve employ wellness and decrease absenteeism, or a non-profit looking to train your volunteers to run groups and increase your impact in the community, we can get you started and offer ongoing support to make your groups a sustainable success.
JOIN A GROUP
If you’re looking for a peer support group in the Toronto area, you can search our database or give us a call to find out what’s available. If you’re running a peer support group, please send us your details and we’ll add you to our database and promote your group across our social networks.
Every day, people are doing amazing work to help their peers through major life changes. We’re here to help connect people with that valuable support.
SUSTAIN A GROUP
We provide peer support group resources to help sustain healthy groups and we also provide reviews and connections to self-help books and apps because we know that health isn’t something you just do for an hour a week when you’re with your peer support group or your doctor–it’s a 24/7 journey full of ups and downs. We provide resources to help you with each step of the journey.
