Coast Mental Health Foundation will be bringing the 24th Courage To Come Back Awards, presented by Wheaton Precious Metals, straight to British Columbians’ living rooms in TV show format on Saturday, May 14, 2022. The one-hour commercial-free television show will air on Global BC and stream via CityNews online starting at 4:30pm.
Hosted by Olympian, former Vancouver Canuck goaltender, and Mental Health advocate Corey Hirsch, the Courage To Come Back TV Show will celebrate the inspiring journeys of five recipients, each of whom have overcome extraordinary adversity to come back, and who give back to their community.

There are five categories: Mental Health, Addiction, Youth, Medical and Physical Rehabilitation.
The event, which usually takes place in a ballroom, is the main opportunity for the community to raise funds for Coast Mental Health. Over the last 24 years, the Awards have celebrated 139 recipients and have raised over $20 million to support people living with mental illness.
The show will also highlight stories from the front lines at Coast Mental Health, as they raise critical funds for people living with mental illness here in BC.
