Courage to Come Back Awards

At Coast Mental Health, we know that with the right supports, people can overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges, build better lives and contribute meaningfully to our communities.

First held in Vancouver in 1999, the Courage To Come Back Awards were born out of our firsthand experience of the human spirit’s inspiring capacity to overcome adversity and our wish to celebrate British Columbians who have found the courage to come back.

The Courage To Come Back Awards are given in five categories:

  • Mental Health
  • Addiction
  • Medical
  • Physical Rehabilitation
  • Youth

Courage To Come Back Award recipients are recognized at a gala celebration every May where their stories are told and accomplishments honored. Over the years, the gala has become Coast’s most important fundraiser, with more than 1,500 people attending the 19th event in 2017, raising a record $1.64 million. Funds raised from the Courage To Come Back Awards are vital to ensuring Coast can continue to provide the innovative, community-based and client-led programs that have made Coast a leader in mental health care.

Tickets are on sale now for our 20th Anniversary Courage To Come Back Awards Gala on May 10, 2018 at couragetocomeback.ca.
