Open to Provincial Region, Patient partners across the province

Last updated

The BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services (BCMHSUS) provides health care services to people across BC with severe mental health and substance use issues, people in custody and people who have been referred by the courts for mental health assessment and treatment.

The Crisis Line Enhancement Project is aimed at improving the delivery of crisis line services in BC. The goal of this work is to provide evidence-based approaches (e.g. mental health/substance use assessment, emotional support, information and referral, and crisis and suicide intervention) to enhance the quality and effectiveness of a provincial program for crisis intervention and mental health and substance use information. Several stakeholders across the province will be working in collaboration on this initiative including BCMHSUS, Provincial Health Services Authority, Vancouver Coastal Health, Fraser Health, Island Health, Northern Health, and First Nations Health Authority.

I was thrilled to discover the Patient Voices Network, where the array of places to be the voice of a patient is vast and incredibly interesting. Besides my ongoing “gig” with the BC Emergency Medicine Network, I have enjoyed being involved in several one-off initiatives. I love working with professionals who genuinely value the perspectives of their patient partners.
