VIMHS relies on the generosity and kindness of the community and people from all walks of life

The VIMHS Annual Appeal is sent out in December each year, accompanied by the personal story of a resident living in VIMHS housing. It’s delivered by post and email to our close community supporters and partners—and brings the story of hope and recovery. The funds raised are used to provide direct recreational and social experiences for our residents. Please share what you have with them!

When people in our Vancouver Island communities struggle, United Way is there to help

United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island kicked off its annual campaign on September 18th. Your donation to United Way is invested in three areas: overcoming poverty; successful kids; and strong communities. United Way is a proven method for bringing together the right people, gathering information, and investing in programs to make change happen. Vancouver Island Mental Health Society is grateful for the support of United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island—and we encourage you to participate and give!

GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about realchange in their communities

GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday. VIMHS participates in GivingTuesday, inviting your charitable donations on our CanadaHelps page. Please help us to continue offering help and hope to people affected by mental health challenges!
