Online mental health & substance use services

Online services make it easy to get the help you need at a time and place that is convenient for you.


MindHealthBC is a new evidence-based online service will make it easier to find the help you need for depression, anxiety, and other mental health and substance use conditions. It is a free, one stop shop that gathers the wealth of resources available and puts them together into one easy to use website that includes:
  • Local support groups and health services within Vancouver, Richmond, and Coastal communities

  • Online information pages and workbooks provided through BC Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information and other trusted BC sources

  • Self-help or supported self-help programs such as the BC Canadian Mental Health Association’s Bounce Back® Online (available without a doctor’s referral)

  • Valuable resources for friends and family members seeking information for their loved ones.

Watch our YouTube video and follow MindHealthBC on Twitter and Facebook to learn more. MindHealthBC was developed by Vancouver Coastal Health and Providence Health Care in partnership with the Shared Care Committee – a joint Committee of the Doctors of BC and the Ministry of Health. Bounce Back® is funded by the Provincial Health Services Authority.
