Add a service

Thank you for taking the time to submit a service to the MindMapBC database! We appreciate your help more than you know - you are a superstar!

All submissions are reviewed by our team for accuracy and completion before being added to the database. This process typically takes 1-2 weeks and we will be in touch at the email address provided in the form if we have any questions. For services tagged as 2S/LGBTQ+-affirming, we may ask additional questions to ensure that all we provide consistent and thorough service information to site users.

Most services included in MindMap are based in the Lower Mainland; help us expand by telling us about other great mental health services in BC!

Service Information


An address is required to be added to the map, but entries without an address are still included in the database as some services (e.g. online only services), do not have an address.

Service Types

Tell us more about your work!

'Affirming' mental health support may look different for different groups of people. The following questions will help us to understand steps you have taken to ensure an affirming space for Two-Spirit, Trans, and/or LGBQ+ clients. These questions were collaboratively developed with community members, researchers, and mental health and other service providers.

In an effort to ensure that MindMapBC users have the information necessary to find a service that meets their needs, your responses to the following questions will be publicly available on your service listing. You do not need to include a comment for every question, but it does help website visitors learn more about your work and approach.
