$3,100,000 Raised! Thank You!

 

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. More than 1,800 people attended the 20th anniversary event in 2018, raising a record $3 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.

The Courage To Come Back Awards is one of the largest fundraising events of its kind in Western Canada. The funds raised help Coast Mental Health ensure that people with mental illness receive the homes, education, employment and support they need to move from hopelessness and despair to leading rich, full lives and realize their potential. Coast Mental Health has been a leader in innovative community-based mental health services for more than 45 years. Each year, Coast helps over 4,000 people on the path towards recovery.

The event is chaired by Lorne Segal, O.B.C., D.Litt. (Hon.), LLD. (Hon.), President of Kingswood Properties Ltd.
