Greetings and welcome to the Mental Health BC blog. On this site you will find information, resources, news, research and links for resources.
As a Registered Social Worker (RSW) I have been working in the areas of child, youth and adult mental health, psychiatry and forensic psychiatry for many years.
I have worked with many individuals, families, and other stakeholders who have struggled to find helpful, timely and effective support and assistance for those struggling with mental health issues. This has what has inspired me to create this blog.
This blog is for informational and educational purposes only. I am not able to provide advice, advocacy, or any individual services to those who contact me.
One of the first posts I will be adding to the blog is How to Get Mental Health Help for You, or a Loved One. This will provide people with the information they require to take any next steps that are necessary.
Thanks for visiting the blog and I hope you find it helpful.
