Okanagan Mental Health Services Society
The Okanagan Mental Health Services Society (OMHSS) is a not-for-profit organization in Kelowna, BC that understands the many challenges people with mental illness face.
Since 2001, we have been assisting our clients in finding and maintaining employment, and providing a place to call home that offers support, acceptance and comfort. We focus on developing and maintaining relationships based on caring and a deep understanding of our clients’ needs. Our programs are flexible and adapt frequently to the challenging needs of individuals requiring our assistance.
Supportive Housing Programs
OMHSS provides longer term subsidized housing for residents of Kelowna and the surrounding area. Within the 6 homes now operated by OMHSS, each resident has access to staffing to support them with appointments, outings, shopping, laundry, cooking, and life skills training.
Therapeutic Work Programs
OMHSS coordinates the placement of individuals with mental health challenges in work programs where they learn new skills. Supervised teams have a fantastic reputation for doing an amazing job in the Kelowna community. These contracts enable an individual to build up their resume, socialize with others, and manage their financial independence.
