IBD Support Network


Support groups offer very valuable contact with others who share a common illness experience. Mount Sinai Hospital's IBD Support groups are both peer and professionally facilitated.

Daytime Support Group

This is a daytime support group for people whose lives have been affected by inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis. This group takes place at Mount Sinai Hospital in the 14th floor classroom and meets for one and a half hours in the afternoon.

The co-facilitators are Catherine Coulthard of the Department of Social Work, Brenda O'Connor RN, Department of Surgery, one of our IBD Support Network Steering Committee members and a social worker.

See the schedule for the Daytime Support Group.

IBD Support Network

This evening meeting offers educational talks and informal networking opportunities for people with Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease.

See the schedule for the Evening Support Network.

The IBD Support Network is organized by a volunteer patient/family steering committee with participation from health professionals.

Community Support Groups


Many local chapters of the Crohn's and Colitis Canada offer monthly educational talks. These are not intended to be support groups, but there is often opportunity for informal discussion and to make new contacts after the talks.

Ostomy Toronto

Affiliated with the United Ostomy Association, Ostomy Toronto has a monthly program of education and discussion.
