“We all struggle with stress and it’s amazing to know that there really are other people out there that care, that do not pass judgments, and that really love us. I feel hopeful knowing I’m not alone.” - Sources Client

Life has changed since COVID-19, with one of the biggest impacts being the hit on our mental health. The effects of suffering from isolation, anxiety, depression and discrimination can linger for a long time unless properly addressed. 

New research by B.C. Children's Hospital shows that two-thirds of B.C. youth are struggling with mental health during the pandemic, up from just one-third before the arrival of COVID-19; and, according to the Canadian Mental Health Association, there is growing research that suggests the pandemic is causing post-traumatic stress disorder in some people. 

Your donation will help fund the Mental Health and Social Wellness services that SOURCES offers, with a specific focus on supporting the mental wellness of youth, families and seniors. 

Since the pandemic began, SOURCES has experienced an enormous increase in demand for professional and compassionate mental wellness supports. 

* Counselling Services have seen a 400% increase in calls and we have had to double our team of Master's level Registered Clinical Counsellors to meet the demand
* Crisis calls to the Trauma Counselling Program have increased – to 1,104 calls in 2020/21 from 402 calls in 2019/20 – in line with the reported increase in domestic abuse
* DiscoverY has helped more than 250 youth and young adults receive free mental health counselling, without waitlists or other barriers, since it launched in 2019
* While DiscoverY is delivered primarily in South Surrey-White Rock, serving young people from those communities and from other parts of Surrey, due to the program’s popularity and community needs, we have started offering DiscoverY in Parksville and Cloverdale.

Funding these programs is more important than ever. Thank you for giving generously.
