Coast Mental Health



JACK 96.9 is proud to support the 2021-2022 Courage To Come Back Awards in partnership with Coast Mental Health.

Each year, Coast Mental Health invites British Columbians to honour everyday heroes in our communities by nominating them for an award.   This year, we celebrate the 24th Courage To Come Back Awards presented by Wheaton Precious Metals by recognizing those who have not only overcome tremendous illness or adversity, but whose own challenges have inspired them to selflessly give back to others. Their inspirational stories deserve our recognition.

Nomination categories include: Addiction, Medical, Mental Health, Physical Rehabilitation, and Youth.

Nomination Deadline is Friday, January 7, 2022

“As chair of the Courage To Come Back Awards, reading through the hundreds of nominations we receive every year is a moment I look forward to with great anticipation. All of them are true journeys of bravery, resilience and strength in the face of adversity. I am grateful to those that have the courage to share their stories with us.” said Lorne Segal, Chair – The Courage To Come Back Awards.

Since 1999, over 2,500 British Columbians have been honoured by their friends and family through a nomination, 134 of whom received these prestigious awards. They are our loved ones, our neighbours, and our friends, who have overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges with courage, strength, and a drive to inspire change and hope in the lives of others.

Their moving stories will be celebrated on May 5, 2022 in support of Coast Mental Health Foundation.
