About Mental Health Recovery Partners
MHRP provides services for people with mental illness, regardless of their diagnosis, and the people who care about them. Approximately two-thirds of the people that we serve have schizophrenia or psychosis or a loved one with schizophrenia or psychosis, and one third have a mood disorder (bipolar disorder or major depression) or a loved one that does. We also provide service to people with anxiety, borderline personality disorder, and other disorders. Sometimes people do not have a diagnosis but are behaving in a way that leads others to believe that they have a mental illness. We can assist in this situation with support, information and strategies to connect with resources. We provide service to people who have a mental illness with or without a substance use issue (concurrent disorder or dual diagnosis).

With great respect and gratitude, we recognize and acknowledge that Mental Health Recovery Partners, South Island is situated within the traditional unceded territory of the Coast Salish, specifically that of the Lekwungen and W_SÁNEC peoples. Through inclusive practice and recognition of both the historical and ongoing oppressive contexts of colonialism, MHRP-SI hopes to foster strong relationships with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.
