What is this engagement about?
It is likely that you or someone you care about will be affected by mental health and/or substance use at some point in life. These issues don’t discriminate – they affect people from all walks of life, of all ages and backgrounds, from all regions of the province, including your neighbours, co-workers, friends, parents, siblings and children.
In 2017, the British Columbia government created the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions to find a way to better support people living with mental health and addictions issues. The Ministry and its partners are committed to working collaboratively to transform the mental health and addictions landscape in B.C. That commitment includes an opportunity for British Columbians to provide valuable input into the development of a draft mental health and addictions strategy. This opportunity to engage will take place in two phases and is expected to conclude by summer 2018. Learn more about the engagement process here.
