Who We Are

Tantalus Wellspring Society (TWS) is a Squamish-based registered charity committed to bridging gaps in mental health and wellness services. TWS grew out of the identified need for affordable mental healthcare in our community. Our aim is to ensure all community members have access to both preventative and responsive support and services. We are committed to helping empower people in their own mental well-being by providing access to activities that support mental wellness through community-based workshops and activities. We are also committed to ensuring that individuals, families, couples and youth have access to qualified therapists.

What We Do

We recognize that access to services which support mental wellbeing is limited and as a result, many community members are unable to access preventative, holistic and responsive clinical services provided by qualified practitioners. TWS aims to ensure that every member of our community has access to these services and help bridge funding gaps for individuals and families that may slip through the cracks.

How We Help

Squamish and the Sea To Sky corridor are fortunate to have an abundance of highly skilled practitioners able to offer an array of services that support mental health and wellness. TWS has been working with some of the amazing and talented mental health and wellness practitioners in our community for the past few years. Together we have been able to provide members of the community with access to an array of learning opportunities including counseling, yoga and meditation, grounding and shielding, walking the medicine wheel, dental care, healthy communication and music therapy, to name a few. We also spearhead two primary projects, Empowerment & Choice and The Collaboration Project. (Learn more about those projects below.)

Empowerment and Choice

Counseling Support for Youth and their Families/Caregivers


As part of the Telus Friendly Futures Foundation, we received a grant last year to assist individuals with the cost of accessing mental health services in the Sea to Sky corridor. The grant was specifically to assist youth, and their families or caregivers to access counseling (either individually or as a family), provided by the therapist of their choosing. There are many excellent therapists practicing in the Sea to Sky region who we have partnered with to work under this program, and we are happy to provide a list of these therapists upon request.

Due to additional funding provided by  Squamish Community Foundation, we are able to open a third intake.

THE COLLABORATION PROJECT

Tantalus Wellspring Society has created partnerships with local service providers and businesses to reduce financial obstacles that can prevent people from engaging in activities that are not only enjoyable and engaging, but also support wellness. The goal is to make such activities available to everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances.
