Accountability

Our vision, mission and values are aligned with the goal of PHSA, to provide province-wide solutions and better health for British Columbians.
Our role

BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services (BCMHSUS) operates within the context of a larger mental health and services system in which Regional Health Authorities, the Ministry of Child & Family Development, the Criminal Justice System, Community Agencies, Patients and Families all play important roles.

For people who need care, there is a continuum of primary, secondary and appropriate tertiary mental health services in place in each geographic health authority – all linked to the specialized services provided by BCMHSUS, which are accessible to all residents of BC. Patients move between services as dictated by their individual needs. Access is not delayed by a lack of capacity and care is provided in the most appropriate setting.
