Welcome to Sea to Sky Safety Net - a mental health and substance use resource hub that pulls together local and reliable information to help bolster mental wellness and community resilience. The goal of Sea to Sky Safety Net is to eliminate stigma by building awareness of community support services, and encouraging people to reach out for help.
