We’re stronger together

The BC Partners are seven non-profit agencies working to advance mental health and substance use (MHSU) literacy. Since 2003, we’ve collaborated to provide the resources people need to live well and both prevent and manage mental health and substance use problems.

We’re listening closely to cover relevant MHSU topics that British Columbians want to see in the magazine. Learn more

“We need to talk about mental health crisis responses; we need to talk about culturally informed care; we need start to draft a roadmap to increased equity in our country and in the world. Thankfully, your magazine and its contributors are starting us on this winding and intersecting path.” – Visions Reader

Professional Learning K-12

Consulting with K-12 educators and families to advance MHSU knowledge

Last year, we connected with BC families and educators to learn how we can better support their MHSU needs, and created a strategic report with concrete recommendations. While we often hear that teachers and parents of K-12 students have competing interests, our research shows that these groups share significant common ground.
