We all have a story

Personal stories are incredibly powerful in helping people understand and connect to the b4stage4 philosophy. If you have a story to tell – whether it’s one of lived experience with the mental healthcare system, a professional perspective, a story of someone close to you or a vision for a better future – we’d love to talk to you about it. Your writing can be published under your name or anonymously. You don’t need to be a polished author, we can help with editing, and we will never use your story or your words without explaining exactly how it might be used, answering any questions you might have, and getting your consent.

Connect with our team at public.policy@cmha.bc.ca to discuss how your story can help make a difference.
