West Lane Recycling is a program of Mental Health and Addiction Services, Population Health Branch, Western Health. It is a community-based occupational therapy program for individuals living with a mental illness. Through work activity and contact with the public, participants of West Lane are given an opportunity to increase their self-esteem, confidence, learn new skills and develop strategies to maintain health. Recycling is recognized as a valuable community service and West Lane offers individuals a working role and an opportunity to place structure and support in their daily lives.
Interested individuals must be 19 years or older, have a diagnosis of psychosis, mood disorder, or anxiety disorder, and be able to identify and work towards goals in order to qualify for the program. Individuals may self refer or be referred by a community professional, family member or support person. All potential clients must be assessed by the Occupational Therapist to ensure that the West Lane program can meet their needs.
