Coast Mental Health’s 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 realizing their potential. Coast Mental Health has been a leader innovative community-based mental health services for more than 45 years. Each year, Coast helps over 4,300 people on the path towards recovery.
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
- Physical Rehabilitation
Each award recipient will share their 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, held at the Vancouver Convention Centre West Building (1055 Canada Pl.), 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.
