Relief for ALL Mental Illness

We offer mental illness and addiction support services at no cost to people living in northern British Columbia. For 31 years our mission and goals have been at the heart of everything we do as a not-for-profit society in the north. Through our programs and activities we strive to reduce stigma through education and awareness; support individuals and families; advocate for improved services and treatments; and support research. We're standing by to help.

The Means To Succeed

Mental health issues can range from a single bout with depression to a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder such as schizophrenaia that has affected people throughout history. About 300,000 Canadians suffer with schizophrenia and many millions more with other types of mental health and addiction issues.

Our goal is to relieve suffering by providing access to care necessary to your health and well being. We partner with BCSSPG F.A.M.I.L.I.E.S. for education and outreach opportunities for people living in B.C.'s northern interior region. We also oversee the Activity Centre for Empowerment (A.C.E.), which is a drop-in centre providing ongoing mental health support for people in the Prince George area.
