History

Kevin was involved with the Spirituality Project, that was funded by Vancouver Coastal Health, as a member of the Spirituality Advisory Committee and a co-presenter of some tools and information that could be used with a client exploring their spirituality.

Kevin had mentioned to the head of this project, Sharon, that perhaps a web space could be developed where people could explore spiritual resources and topics in a safe supportive environment. Sharon asked Kevin if he would be interested in setting this up.

They recruited some other mental health consumers, Matthew and Sandra, and the group sent a proposal to the Consumer Initiative Fund, which is also funded by Vancouver Coastal Health, and they were chosen as one of the projects that would receive funding that year.

As a result they have created the Spirit of Recovery Website and Database, which provides resource lists and a forum, for people to explore and add to if they so wish.

The Consumer Initiative Fund continues funding and advising this project.

The ¬†group plans to create material to present to different Mental Health and Addiction Sites within Vancouver Coastal Health’s boundaries to raise awareness of our website.
