Coast Mental Health’s Courage To Come Back Awards

presented by wheaton precious metals

The Courage To Come Back Awards celebrates Five British Columbians who have overcome illness or adversity and have 'come back to give back' to their communities, and to inspire others to do the same.

Thank you to everyone who attended and donated on the 9th June! Thanks to your incredible support, people living with mental illness will be able to access the supports they need.

In our 25th Anniversary year, Coast Mental Health’s Courage To Come Back Awards was one of the largest award galas of its kind in Western Canada and a great opportunity to celebrate extraordinary stories of triumph against adversity.
