Foundation Relationship to BCMHSUS

The BC Mental Health Foundation is the fundraising arm of BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services (BCMHSUS), an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority. BCMHSUS provides specialized and tertiary mental health and substance use services for children, adolescents and adults across the province. BCMHSUS works to ensure that everyone in British Columbia has access to the specialized mental health services they need, when they need them, regardless of where they live. In addition to delivering these clinical services, BCMHSUS provides provincial leadership for health promotion and illness prevention; knowledge exchange; and research and academic teaching.

The BC Mental Health Foundation supports BCMHSUS's programs through our mission to change the face of mental health in BC by supporting breakthroughs in public understanding, research and knowledge exchange to improve mental health for all British Columbians.
