What is MindMapBC?

MindMapBC is a database of outpatient mental health services, resources, and related supports. Learn more about the types of services on MindMapBC!

Where possible, we have selected services that are 2S/LGBTQ+ affirming, free, low-cost, or sliding scale, and self-referral services—meaning you do not need to see a doctor before accessing the service.

Who created MindMapBC?

MindMapBC was developed as a collaborative project between several community-based agencies working with the 2S/LGBTQ+ communities. We also work closely with several Advisory Groups that include people with diverse lived and living experience related to mental health. They provide guidance and feedback on MindMapBC, including strategies for improving the site, process and guidelines for identifying and screening services, opportunities for expansion, priorities for evaluation, and much more!
