Description des services: Provides support to individuals with Huntington Disease (HD), persons at-risk, persons who are gene-positive, caregivers and family members, community members, friends and neighbours.

Services are provided locally through a Resource Centre Director covering East Central Ontario and includes information and education, short-term counselling, resource counselling and referral, and individual advocacy.

Support groups are currently held in Whitby and Peterborough.

A virtual chapter of HSC called YPAHD (Young People Affected by Huntington Disease), provides a community and support network specifically for youth. A new mentorship program is now available to link youth, aged 12 and older, with a trained, volunteer mentor who understands the challenges of growing up in a family affected by HD.

Education and consultation is provided to health, social service and community workers involved in the care of an individual affected by Huntington Disease.
