About MindMapBC

What is MindMapBC?

MindMapBC is a custom-made database of outpatient mental health services including professional counseling, peer counseling, support groups, and others. Where possible, we have selected services that are free, low-cost, or sliding scale, and self-referral services—meaning you do not need to see a doctor before accessing the service.

Why was MindMapBC created?

MindMapBC is motivated by research showing high rates of mental health concerns among sexual health clinic clients in Greater Vancouver. We heard from both community members and health care providers that it can be difficult to find mental health services, especially those that are affirming of 2S/LGBTQ+ (Two-Spirit, as well as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, Two-Spirit, and other gender- and sexually-diverse) people.
