It is not uncommon for there to be waitlists for our programs. Please call the program you are interested in directly and ask to speak to the program manager to inquire for more details.
There is no cost for any of Thrive’s programs.
Yes, most often being involved with Thrive does not exclude you from other services. However, it will be best to talk to your Thrive worker to figure out a plan that meets your needs for support and to ensure there is no duplication of services.
The Thrive Mental Health Outreach Team (MHOT) specifically targets mental health issues present in children and youth. The intended role is to support caregivers, children and youth to reach an increased level of stability and mental wellness in the home. Check out our resources page for more information on other Mental Health Services in the community.

Our Thrive team acknowledges that our agency stands and works on the unceded Lək̓ʷəŋən territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. We also acknowledge the five W̱SÁNEĆ communities: W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), BOḰEĆEN (Pauquachin), SȾÁUTW̱,(Tsawout) W̱SIKEM (Tseycum) and MÁLEXEȽ (Malahat), as well as the Sc'ianew (Beecher Bay), T’Sou-ke, and Pacheedaht Nations and the Spune’laxutth’ (Penelekut) tribe where our work extends. We are committed to acknowledging our relationship with these unceded lands and communities, at staff and Board meetings, and during our hosted events. We encourage the evolving learning and awareness of our staff, Board, and the Thrive community, discovering and striving for meaning and personal connection within each acknowledgement.Statement of Reconciliation
