HIM can help

Many people find the idea of counselling to be intimidating. But talking to an expert can often lead to positive changes in mood and a shift in understanding of relationships with yourself and others.

Services at HIM

The Health Initiative for Men (HIM) is a non-profit organization based in the Lower Mainland. HIM offers mental health programs to self-identified men (trans men, cis men, and other men), non-binary, and gender-queer folks who also identify as two-spirit, asexual, gay, bi, queer, and/or as other guys who are into guys. 

Counselling with HIM can provide insight, tools, guidance and information in a way that is sex-positive, non-judgmental, and affirming. 

Professional volunteer counselling program

The HIM Professional Volunteer counselling program supports people who have low annual income or are otherwise marginalized.  HIM can connect you with a therapist who has professional counselling, psychology or other related credentials.
Our counsellors aim to create a safe, welcoming space where you can explore whatever is troubling your psychological and emotional well-being.

HIM Helps: reduced rate counselling program

The HIM Helps Program offers reduced-cost counselling to gay, bi, queer, trans, Two-Spirit and other guys into guys.  This confidential and professional program is ideal if you have medium to high annual income or insurance coverage.  Hourly fees range from $50-$80, depending on annual income and insurance coverage.
