Recovery: Taking the First Step
Mental illness often has no visible manifestations and, therefore, may go unnoticed. Experiencing a mental illness may be isolating, sometimes feel frightening or embarrassing and may seem overwhelming. Whether you have a mental illness, or are someone with a loved one who has a mental illness, you need to know that experiencing a mental illness is not the end of the road and that recovery is possible. At Island Community Mental Health, we know that it is possible to have a mental illness and still lead a life that is fulfilling, with the capacity to work, enjoy recreational activities, volunteer, develop relationships and be an active member of your community.
We believe that each person who experiences mental illness has the capacity to move forward, to learn and grow, and that even the smallest steps towards recovery can achieve an improved quality of life. We understand that sometimes it can feel impossible to take those next steps, big or small, on your own, so we are here to help.
Thanks to your donations, we can continue serving the community.
Recreation, Employment, Education, Housing
Island Community Mental Health offers a variety of programs and opportunities for adults aged 19 and over who are experiencing a mental illness. Our services are designed to promote hope and recovery and offer people experiencing a mental illness the supports needed to achieve success in their life. At ICMH each person is treated as an individual, and we listen to your choices and encourage you to take risks.
We have a variety of recreation and wellness programs for different ages, abilities and mental health concerns, including Supported Employment and Education Programs, Dementia support and respite, and Recovery-focused day programs. Along with our programs we offer subsidized housing that includes four apartment buildings and three group homes. We also provide mental health support services to over 100 people living in rental suites in the community.
