What is self-help/mutual aid and how does it relate to your work? Self-help/Mutual aid is a process of sharing common experiences, situations or problems. Self-Help is participatory in nature and involves getting help, giving help and learning to help yourself, as well as sharing knowledge and experience. Self-help initiatives are run by and for participants, meet on an ongoing basis, are voluntary in nature and are open to new members. The primary focus of self-help is emotional support, practical support and informational exchange.

The workshop is free, but please contact Jenny at (416) 487-4355 or e-mail at to register.
