Community Partners

A-Way’s numerous support programs are made possible through valued partnerships. We thank all of our partners for their commitment and support.

Toronto Central LHIN - MSAA  2017-18 Amending Agreement


A-Way is a Consumer-Survivor Initiative (CSI). This means that the organization not only employs people with lived experience of mental health issues, but was founded and is run by people with lived experience. Even our board is comprised primarily of people with lived experience of mental health issues.

This places us in a unique position to connect with people within the mental health community. As a result, we have formed a network with other CSIs , specifically those who – like us – receive core funding from the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (TC LHIN).

Funded by the TC LHIN, our role as the CSI Network is to connect with the mental health community. We ensure that they are informed of initiatives and services available within our health system and we communicate to the TC LHIN, on trends and needs that we learn about through connecting with mental health survivors.


We welcome donations to help us support A-Way’s support programs. Donations received from individuals last year exceeded $7,000 and made many of our activities possible.

If you or your company are interested in making a donation, please contact Meredith Cochrane, A-Way’s Executive Director. Donations of any size are appreciated and tax receipts are provided upon request.
