About This Charity
Vancouver Island Mental Health Society (VIMHS) is a Vancouver Island based registered non-profit organization. We provide psycho-social rehabilitation for adults with mental health and addictions concerns, and/or cognitive challenges. We engage communities through programs that promote recovery, social inclusion, safe housing, and public education.
VIMHS’s intent is to encourage a society that values and supports all people, including those experiencing psychiatric, addiction, and cognitive challenges through thoughtful, community-driven leadership.
Our resources are dedicated to:
- incorporating contemporary knowledge and best practices in the delivery of mental health and addictions programs;
- fostering dialogue among local communities to generate responses to emergent and ongoing social challenges.
We provide varying degrees of staff support with the objective of aiding the residents to achieve their highest level of independence. Gateway House remains the only licensed residential facility with 24/7 staffing in the Nanaimo area.
As the population of Nanaimo has grown, Vancouver Island Mental Health Society has been asked to provide services to individuals with a higher acuity of mental illness. The Society has responded to this changing need and hopes to increase its capacity to assist individuals to transition into community life.
Vancouver Island Mental Health Society relies on the generosity and kindness of the community and people from all walks of life. Help us to help others and make a difference in the lives of people in need of supportive homes.
We’re grateful for all donations and bequests received from individuals and organizations.
