Celebrating True Courage

Celebrate the inspiring journeys of this year's recipients straight from your living room

Introducing The Courage To Come Back TV Show!

This year, we'll be bringing the inspiring and courageous stories of our five recipients straight to your living room with a 30-minute commercial-free television show that will air on Global TV and CityNews1130.com on May 29 at 5pm.

Hosted by Olympian, former Vancouver Canuck goaltender, and Mental Health advocate Corey Hirsch, the show will allow us to reach millions of viewers in their homes including, we hope, you and your loved ones.

We’ll be celebrating the inspiring journeys of our five recipients, each of whom have overcome extraordinary adversity to come back, and who give back to their community.

You’ll also be able to see your dollars hard at work with stories from the front lines at Coast Mental Health, as we raise critical funds for people living with mental illness here in BC.

Never have these stories of resilience and strength been more relevant than now.

All of them are true journeys of bravery, resilience and strength in the face of adversity. I am grateful to those that have the courage to share their stories with us.
