​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Did you know that there are over 200 million internet search results for depression and anxiety? This can be overwhelming to your patient who is struggling.

Luckily, MindHealthBC makes things simple. We offer a screening quiz that can help identify what your patient is struggling with, and highly targeted recommendation pages that offer the most relevant and trustworthy support options. 

MindHealthBC has been carefully curated by Vancouver Coastal Health and Providence Health Care in partnership with Shared Care Committee- a joint committee of the Doctors of BC and the Ministry of Health. We’ve worked closely with the BC Partners for Mental Health and Addiction information, Divisions of Family Practice, mental health professionals, and persons with lived experience and their family members/supports to create a comprehensive tool that you and your patients can trust.
