VICTORIA, B.C. – The Government of British Columbia has announced that more British Columbians will have access to community-based low-and no-cost mental health and substance use supports.
In order to provide more access to these services, the Government says $10 million in grants are being awarded to community counselling programs throughout the province.
According to the Province, 29 community organizations have received funding to support a broad range of mental health and substance use services.
These services include easy-to-access counselling, with a focus on marginalized people and those who have faced barriers accessing the supports they need.
The funding is part of A Pathway to Hope: A roadmap for improving mental health and addictions care for everyone in B.C.
