Coast Mental Health - was created as a non-profit society in 1972 in response to a growing need in the community for services to assist people recovering from a serious mental illness. We operate in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia providing approximately 1200 people with supportive housing and 3500 clients living in the community with a wide variety of programs and services.
Coast fosters an environment that promotes restoring health, personal growth and a return to society for individuals with a mental illness through advocacy and providing direct programs and services. Since its inception, Coast has not only focused on services but has also placed emphasis on clients being members of Coast so they have a role in determining priorities and how services are provided. Creating and maintaining a healthy community is the foundation of what we do.
Mission: Coast advocates, supports and promotes recovery of persons with mental illness.
Vision: A society where possibilities become reality.
