Let’s change the way we think about mental health and addictions.

There is an opportunity in front of us to improve mental health and addiction care in British Columbia. We currently pay for a system of care in the most expensive ways possible. People wait too long for care and too many people get their care from emergency departments and police. We can offer proven choices and support to help people recover and keep people connected in communities.

We believe action in these five areas will lead to better mental health in our province

  • Focus on prevention and early intervention
  • Build an accessible addictions health care system
  • Strengthen recovery closer to home, in community
  • Improve crisis care
  • Lead change in mental health and addictions

The b4stage4 declaration outlines these principles for change – but we need your support to put these principles into action and make better mental health a reality. Join us in calling for sweeping change that will value mental health as equal to physical health.
