We did our very best to handover our programs and resources, where possible, to other organizations.

Peer Support Referrals: Please note, SHRC’s phone numbers 416-487-4355 and toll-free 1-888-283-8806 will be down for up to three weeks from May 31, 2017, while we transfer them to FindHelp (1-888-340-1001). In the meantime, if you looking for a peer support group, you can search our online database here. If you are experiencing crisis, please call Gerstein Crisis Centre on (416-929-5200).

ODSP Peer Navigator Program has been transferred to C/S Info Centre (416-595-2882) until September 30, 2017.

Peer Support Facilitator Training will no longer be offered. For similar training, please contact Mood Disorders Association of Ontario (1-888-486-8236) or the Ontario Peer Development Initiative (1-866-681-6661).

Peer Worker Community-of-Practice is no longer hosted by SHRC.

Youth WRAP has been handed over to Stella’s Place (416-461-2345).

Thank you for your support of SHRC for over 29 years!


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.



We provide peer support group resources to help sustain healthy groups and a monthly Community of Practice to learn more about the field of peer support and practice invaluable skills. We know that wellness isn’t something you just do for an hour a week when you’re with your peer support group–it’s a 24/7 journey full of ups and downs. We provide resources to help you with each step of the journey.
