Open to Patient partners in Vancouver (not including DTES)

Last updated

Vancouver Community is currently reviewing and redesigning its mental health and substance use services to better meet the needs of our patients in the community and to provide better support for our staff. The Core Values Working Group goals are to determine what core services should be provided by the neighborhood based mental health and substance use teams.

The mental health and substance use teams involved are Raven Song MHSU, South MHSU, Evergreen SU, Grandview Woodland MH, Northeast MH, Three Bridges SU, West End MH, South MHSU, Kitsilano Fairview MH and STEPS Rehab Team.

The working group would like to recruit two patient partners and two family members to participate on this working group. If you have experience with VCH Community Mental Health Services, please consider supporting this project.

Please contact if you have any questions. Thank you!

PVN has really helped us engage with patient partners to improve health services at Northern Health.  It is more and more becoming the norm to include patients in the design, delivery and evaluation of health services.  PVN education and supports, involving patient partners, have enabled us to develop the capacity to include the patient voice to make care better and achieve better health outcomes.
