Umbrella actively promotes understanding, acceptance and support for people affected by substance use and mental health issues through advocacy, education and other assistance.
About Our Charity
We’ve been there. We can help.
Umbrella is a unique addictions and mental health resource, which has been serving Victoria, British Columbia since 2000. We offer easy-to-access, peer based outreach support to anyone for whom substance use has become a problem. We have no barriers or exclusionary criteria; we work with anyone regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, religion, income or sexual orientation. There are no forms to fill out, and no fees for Umbrella services, not ever.
Umbrella helps in countless ways: by building self-esteem and practical skills, nurturing hope, and supporting new beginnings. Your gift to Umbrella will change lives for the better.
