  • 37 projects were selected out of 51 applications
  • 19 are peer support projects
  • 7 are clinical mental health projects with peer involvement
  • 11 projects fit into both categories 
  • 19 projects are situated within rural communities or where services do not exist or are minimal
  • Projects are represented across all five health authority regions
  • 15 projects focus on specific communities, such as children/families, BIMPOC, sex worker, refugee/newcomer, and Two-Spirit community.
Funding provides capacity-building support for communities to develop, or build upon, peer support and mental health and well-being services where they do not exist or are minimal, for trans, gender diverse, and Two-Spirit community members, including their parents/caregivers and families.

We received a high number of applications from across BC and we thank all applicants for their interest and for sharing their ideas with us.
