BC has taken another step toward achieving mental health for all. Our provincial 10-year plan for improving mental health and addictions care, A Pathway to Hope, was made public June 2019. Its long anticipated release marked a shift toward mental health promotion, prevention and early intervention; decisions based on evidence and high standards; co-design by people with lived experience; and real progress on wellness basics that support mental health such as income, housing and social connection.
There is now real hope for better mental health and addictions care in our province – but how do we move from a plan to action? This webinar discusses the strengths of A Pathway to Hope, its gaps and missed opportunities, and strategies for continued cross-sector advocacy to meaningfully fulfill its aims. Please view the recording to hear the discussion between CMHA BC and a panel of community leaders.
