The Self-Help Connection (SHC) is a registered charitable organization established in 1987 to assist Nova Scotians to take control of their health by increasing their knowledge, skills, and resources for individual and collective action.
SHC strives to empower groups and people to help them acquire the knowledge, skills and resources to take personal responsibility over their health through self help. SHC takes the stance that citizens have an inherent capacity to learn, grow and change and that through this they have the right to make choices for enhancing their health. SHC also believes that it is important to foster partnerships with self-help allies to promote self-help. As part of our work, SHC is implementing the program WRAP throughout Nova Scotia including building capacity and training for same.
