In partnership with Community Psychiatric Services, CMHA North and West Vancouver provides group home support for 13 men and 6 women through our Supportive Housing Program. We currently operate three supportive housing projects: Lillian House, Harold House & Aborlynn House.
Recovery looks different for each individual. With the support and direction of the clinical team of Vancouver Coastal Health, CMHA staff help residents focus on their recovery goals. While some residents suffer with significant physical ailments that impact their mobility, others benefit from being able to engage in regular physical exercise through North Vancouver’s recreation system. While some residents are stabilized on their medications and symptoms of their mental illness are well managed others actively struggle with achieving mental well-being. Staff support residents wherever they are in their recovery journey.
Placements into CMHA Supportive Housing are made by Community Psychiatric Services at the HOpe Centre in consultation with CMHA North and West Vancouver and are part of the overall mental health strategy of the Health Authority for the North Shore. Inquiries into supportive housing should be directed to the HOpe Centre.
