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.

About the Concurrent Disorders Webinar Series:
This is a quarterly event designed for patients and families, by patients and families. It is a welcoming space for all patients and families interested in learning about topics related to complex and concurrent mental health and substance use disorders.
About BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services: We provide highly-specialized care to people with severe mental health and substance use (MHSU) disorders, people in custody, and people referred by court for mental health assessment or treatment across British Columbia.

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.
