Directory of Self-Help and Mutual Aid Groups in York Region ~ 2013 Edition


Welcome to the 2013 edition of the Directory of Self-Help and Mutual Aid Groups in York Region. In this edition, you will see that some groups that you saw in the last edition (2006 Edition) are no longer meeting, regrettably, but for a variety of reasons and that some of the groups names have changed. However, you will also see the creation of a few new and unique groups since the last edition.

The Directory is meant to serve as a comprehensive guide to the self-help community and as a useful tool for linking individuals with appropriate self-help resources. You will not only see self-help groups in the pure sense, but also groups that may perhaps be in the transition from a professionally-led group to a peer-led group, hybrid groups (a blend of both forms of support) or some support groups that are professionally-facilitated but allow for some group support amongst members. Groups that are professionally facilitated by service providers are identified with a *P after the group’s name.
