NOMINATIONS OPEN: SEPTEMBER 16, 2019

NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN!

Do you know someone who has overcome adversity? Please consider nominating them for the 22nd Courage To Come Back Awards.

The purpose of the Awards is to pay tribute to those who have overcome overwhelming challenges. These individuals deserve to be recognized and to celebrate their contributions to our communities. This recognition goes along way to encouraging these individuals to continue their efforts as role models for others.

At Coast Mental Health, we know that with the right supports, people can overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges, build better lives and contribute meaningfully to our communities.

First held in Vancouver in 1999, the Courage To Come Back Awards were born out of our firsthand experience of the human spirit’s inspiring capacity to overcome adversity and our wish to celebrate British Columbians who have found the courage to come back.

The Courage To Come Back Awards are given in five categories:

  • Mental Health
  • Addiction
  • Medical
  • Physical Rehabilitation
  • Youth

Each award recipient shared her own courageous story of triumph over adversity, making it clear that it is not the challenge itself but the way one responds to it that defines success.

Courage To Come Back Award recipients will be recognized at a gala celebration on May 7, 2020 where their stories will be told and accomplishments honoured. Chaired by Lorne Segal, O.B.C., D.Litt. (Hon.), LLD. (Hon.), President of Kingswood Properties Ltd., the Courage To Come Back Awards gala has become Coast’s most important fundraiser. Nearly 1,700 people attended the 21st Event on April 24, 2019, raising an extraordinary $2.5 million for mental health. Funds raised from the Courage To Come Back Awards ensure Coast Mental Health can continue providing the innovative, client-centered programs that have made Coast a leader in community-based mental health care.
