We are happy to support and to help the world learn about Consumer Survivor Timebank Toronto.
Here is ther notice about information sessions you can attend to find out more. Space is limited, see how to register for the info events below.
- Do you have a skill or talent you would like to share?
- Are you looking for a creative and free way to get support and learn new things without having to access social services?
- Have you ever had experience with mental health services/the mental health system?
- Do you identify as mad, consumer, psychiatric survivor, as a person with a mental illness?
If yes, then The Consumer/Survivor Timebank of Toronto(CSTB) is looking for you.
We are establishing an alternative currency system.
How it works
Members list the things they would like to do, and the things they need help with.
People earn time dollars by helping each other out, and can spend them by “purchasing” help from the timebank.
No goods or money is exchanged.
Everyone is equal.
Timebanks have been shown to reduce isolation and improve quality of life.
