Toronto's Self-Help News

The Winter 1997/98 Newsletter of the Self-Help Resource Centre is packed full of news. For example, in a true self-help model the Executive of the Self-Help Resource Centre has decided to share the

presidency. Bonnie Paper, who has 15 years of work and commitment in the self-help field, is passing the baton on to Irv Rootman, director of the Centre for Health Promotion at U of Toronto, another long-time supporter of the self-help movement. The News bulletin also reports on the wide variety of workshops that have been held in the past few months, and the "Getting Started" workshop now being repeated monthly.

Of particular interest is the news that a new corporate partnership with the Toronto Star CitySearch has meant an offer of a 6 page web-site. The website which SHRC will design with Star CitySearch will

include general information about the Centre, where to find them, a monthly spotlight on groups and the possibility of future on-line bulletin boards to allow online responses. Keep an eye out for it!
