Mental illness and alcohol and drug use problems can be treated. Don’t let the surrounding myths stop you from getting the help you need to change your life.  Remember, you are not alone.

There are many ways you can get help. Often times, discussing issues with your doctor or a professional counsellor can bring the issue under control.

Contact your local Mental Health Centre or family doctor for more information on treatment services that might be right for you, or learn more about our Mental Health and Substance Use services.

If you are affected by mental illness, or if you are a caregiver, review our survival kit and our list of informative websites.

Child and youth mental health services are offered throughout British Columbia by the Ministry for Children and Family Development (MCFD).

Mental health survival kit
