Here to Help (information products)

Funding body: BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services, a program of the Provincial Health Services Authority.

Description: Here to Help is an ongoing project of BC Partners for Mental Health and Substance Use Information. It seeks to help British Columbians and others who visit its web repository learn how to better understand and manage mental health and substance use issues—at home, in the workplace and in the community. As one of seven BC partners, CISUR serves on the project stewardship team and updates substance use information products for distribution on the website.

These activities support health literacy, the knowledge and skills people need to enhance well-being within their environments. Drug literacy, one form of health literacy, means imparting the knowledge and skills needed to effectively navigate a world where psychoactive substances are present and commonly used. This project plays a key role in helping people in the province be better informed when making decisions about substance use in the context of their own unique situations.
