Health Initiative for Men offers Professional Counselling for gay men.

Professional Counsellors volunteer their time to make counselling more accessible to gay men in our community.  Services are provided by a donation equivalent to your hourly wage. Anyone interested in Professional Counselling should contact Aaron at or by calling (604) 488-1001 ext. 230 for further information or to make an appointment.



The Change Advocates program works to alleviate stress and mental health concerns of gay men.  By helping them develop individual strategies that help them move forward, we hope that gay guys will feel empowered in all areas of their lives.  We have advisors that can help you with your:

  • Fitness, exercise, nutrition, weight-loss
  • Sexual, relationship goals
  • Self-esteem, stress management, coming out
  • Finances, budgeting, careers

This service will provide up to 6 individual one–to-one sessions for gay men that would like to develop a strategy around moving forward with change in an area (or several areas) of their life. The sessions are facilitated by trained volunteers from HIM who in turn are supervised by a professional supervisor. Homework will be provided to be completed between sessions – strategic planning will be form based and the participant will be able to take the forms/homework/strategies with them.
