Blenz HOpe Cafe counters stigma around mental illness
We’ve opened a new Blenz in the HOpe Centre at Lions Gate Hospital. But it’s not just any Blenz. It’s partnership of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Vancouver Coastal Health, and Blenz Coffee. The HOpe Café is a social enterprise that employs people with “lived experience” of mental illness and is the first of its kind in British Columbia. We’re proud to be involved in this rewarding venture!
