Work with Us

Are you passionate about working with people who struggle with mental health and substance use? Join us to help make sure people across British Columbia can live healthy, meaningful lives.

We pride ourselves in finding the best people to lead and support the delivery of unique, high-quality mental health and substance use services for all British Columbians. As a provincial leader, we offer specialized care, we work with community partners and we support health professionals across the province.

We focus on the needs of our clients, patients and families first, making sure their voices are represented in our work. We give each client and patient choices and options, focusing on their strengths, and making them key members of their own care teams.

We strive to create work environments where others feel included and inspired to make a difference. We hire physicians, nurses, case managers, psychologists, social workers, other allied health professionals, administrative staff, senior leaders, and many others in both clinical and non-clinical settings.

We also contribute significantly to research, working to ensure that mental health and substance use care across the province is evidence-based.

Join us to make a difference in the lives of British Columbians.

What our leaders and staff have to say

"I've worked in mental health and substance use for many years, doing research, evaluation, policy, and planning, and a big part of why I came to BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services…was the conviction that we can do better by the people we serve, and that I could have more positive impact from within the system." – Deborah, provincial director

"My passion for women-centred care, mental health advocacy and witnessing personal growth are reasons why I love working at [the Heartwood Centre for Women]. Seeing women transition from their first day here to their last and witnessing the growth and change that happens is incredibly moving." — Bella, nurse

"I've seen the difference the right care can make both among my patients, and among loved ones. My calling and my lifelong journey are supporting these people and giving them hope for the future." — Trevor, senior director

One of our nurses describes why she loves working at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital:

"My own experiences having a child in hospital have taught me to remember every single day that I am looking after someone's family member." — Mandi


Listen to what it's like to work in Correctional Health Services:

"Corrections was something different, so I tried it and never left." — Kelsey
