Mental Health Supported Housing

Those with serious and persistent mental illnesses deserve the opportunity to live as independently as possible in an affordable residential environment of their choice according to their individual needs.

We offer different levels of support through a variety of programs. The focus of each program is to assist clients in developing and maintaining life-skills and to help them access community resources in order to enhance their recovery. Participants may receive support for as long as they need assistance to continue to follow their Recovery Plan. Services are determined through mutual planning with participants and their Case Managers at Burnaby Mental Health Services. Funding for these supported housing programs is provided by Fraser Health. All referrals must be made through the Burnaby Mental Health and Substance Use Services.
