About Coast Mental Health
We know that with compassion and courage, recovery from mental illness is possible. With support from donors and other partners, we’ve been helping people find that courage since 1972.
A Vancouver based non-profit, we know that people living with mental challenges can thrive in our communities if they are given the right resources: housing, support services and employment and education opportunities. Our approach is client-focused and community-based. The people we serve – our clients – take the lead in their recovery, working side-by-side with Coast’s team to set goals and decide which services and programs will best help them meet these goals. They also play a key role in the overall success of the organization, whether as peer support workers, members and volunteers at our Clubhouse or Resource Centre, or part of our governance board or Planning & Partnership committee.
Together, every day we prove that recovery from serious mental illness is possible.
