Health Initiative for Men (HIM) Services in Fraser Health region:

Since 2014 HIM has been working with local partners in the Fraser Health Region to improve the accessibility and uptake of health services for GBT2Q folks. In partnership with public health authorities, researchers, policymakers, and our communities, we mobilize the evidence, tools, and leadership necessary to ensure GBT2Q folks in Surrey, Abbotsford, and New Westminster to have access to equitable and culturally competent care.


Physical Health

Whether it’s yoga, dance, or just a way to find community, HIM is constantly looking to provide ways for you to connect with your community, body, and strengthen your physical health. HIM also offers a number of Zoom register virtual activities for physical health which are made available to GBT2Q folks in the Fraser Region and across BC.

That’s why HIM has curated mental health resources for all income levels, because we believe that mental health shouldn’t have barriersGBT2Q folks in the Fraser Valley are welcome to access counselling services at our office in Vancouver by contacting us by phone at 604-488-1001 ext. 235 or by email at
