Coast Mental Health began serving individuals in the Greater Vancouver area in 1972. Coast is a client-driven, recovery-oriented non-profit organization. Today we provide a wide range of programs and services -- supported housing for nearly 1,200 people, helping hundreds find paid work and volunteer activities each year, and providing community services for people with a mental illness.

At Coast, we know that people with a mental illness:

  • have a pivotal role in their own recovery
  • have the capacity to learn and grow
  • should be shown respect and listened to
  • can and do recover

Our programs and services include:

Housing Financial Trusts
Employment Youth Services
