About Sea to Sky Safety Net
“We gratefully and respectfully acknowledge we are on the unceded territories of Southern St’at’imx (Lil’wat, N’Quatqua, Samahquam, Skatin and Xa’xtsa (Douglas) First Nation) and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nations. We thank them for their stewardship of this land and the good medicine it provides us all. We are committed to working together in a good way with all of the Nations, whose land we are on."
The Sea to Sky Safety Net emerged out of an identified need to increase awareness around local mental health and substance use support services; inspire proactive health seeking behaviours; and address barriers to access.
We all have mental health that needs nurturing and together we can work toward building a strong foundation of community support and resilience.
This site shares local and community resources to support individuals who may be experiencing mental health and substance use challenges, including in person support services, online therapy options, opportunities for self-care, navigation tools and literature.
Sea to Sky Safety Net was made possible with support from the Katz Amsterdam Foundation and is a collaborative effort between the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation and our Sea to Sky non-profit and social service partners.
