The Wellspring Approach

DSC_0187Wellspring charges no fees and receives no government or other core funding. Programs and operations are made possible only through the generosity of donors. 

Being part of the compassionate and understanding Wellspring community means having the opportunity to talk with others who have been through cancer, access experts, and to share knowledge and experience in a warm, safe, encouraging and non-clinical environment. Every person who visits Wellspring is unique. We work with every member to identify resources that meet their particular needs and where they are on their cancer journey.

Led by experienced professionals, including psychologists, physiotherapists, therapists and dietitians, Wellspring’s more than 40 programs and services span a comprehensive range of categories, from individual and group support activities to learning coping skills, to expressive arts programs and to practical guidance in areas such as nutrition, financial management and workplace issues. All programming is evidence-based and developed and piloted through the Wellspring Centre of Innovation.
