Through our Healthy Relationships program, MAPS will be able to provide support services and resources to improve healthy relationships for men, their partners, families and communities. By providing quality, individualized, group and comprehensive counselling we can change the destructive behaviour rippling through the lives of many families and work towards healthy relationships

MAPS is sensitive to cultural, economic, gender, and sexual orientation issues, as well as to personal and situational difficulties.

Group Counselling

MAPS provides men with the opportunity to address issues and receive support from other men facing similar struggles. Group counselling is the primary service offered.

Clients can access the program on their own or through referring sources of social agencies, probation, lawyers, partners, teachers, clergy, public health and physicians.

A pre-group screening is required prior to one’s acceptance into a therapy group.

Group therapy is usually made up of 5-9 people with one or more trained professional(s) serving as the facilitators. Groups will be either open or closed. In the Healthy relationships group, there are two stages. The first stage will consist of twelve two-and-a-half-hours (2.5) psycho-educational sessions. The second stage of the group consists of eight one-and-a-half (1.5) hour process-oriented sessions.

Men will need to complete a total of 20 sessions (twelve1st-stage and eight 2nd-stage sessions) to complete the entire program.
