Psychiatric hospitals started to be decommissioned and patients are transferred to community boarding homes.
Coast Mental Health was initially sponsored by the BC Teachers Federation to provide a drop-in centre to support ex-patients. Transportation (Ruby the bus) was added to help people stay connected.
We sign our Certificate of Incorporation under the Societies Act on July 10, 1972.
Through the inspiration of Jackie Hooper, a founding member of Coast, we open our first housing project- Sheraton Apartments.
