Our Mission

Mental Health Visiting and Activty Program - Volunteer Victoria
Volunteer Victoria's Mental Health Visiting and Activity Program matches community volunteers with individuals living within Island Health's Mental Health and Substance Use residential services. Volunteers play a key role in reducing isolation by providing companionship to a resident by going out for a coffee, attending a community event, playing a card game or simply visiting on a regular basis. Volunteers also engage residents in small group activities such as arts and crafts, gardening, wellness, fitness or yoga. Volunteers and residents are matched according to their compatibility, interests, locations and time availability. As a volunteer this is an excellent opportunity to develop an understanding of mental illness and to support someone to achieve their recovery goals. Orientation and supervision is provided jointly by Volunteer Victoria and Island Health's Mental Health and Substance Use staff.
