Demystifying the Mental-Health-Act: On February 22nd, 12:30-2:00 p.m. PST, BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services is hosting a webinar to deepen our understanding of the Mental Health Act, which allows health care providers to involuntarily admit and treat people with serious mental health issues who pose a risk to themselves and/or others. This is an opportunity to unpack and understand how the Mental Health Act is applied from medical, legal, and lived experience perspectives.
