Visions: BC's mental health and addictions journal

Funding body: BC Mental Health Society Branch and BC Ministry of Health

Background: This is an ongoing project aimed at increasing the representation of substance-related information in the award-winning quarterly magazine. It is written by and for a range of BC audiences: people who have experienced mental health or substance use problems, their family and friends, service providers, community advocates, leaders and decision-makers.

Visions is a central knowledge exchange vehicle of the BC Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information. The magazine creates a place where many perspectives on mental health and substance use issues can be heard. As one of seven BC partners, CISUR contributes articles that focus on substance use and socio-ecological approaches to understanding, addressing and managing substance use issues. This project therefore plays a key role in helping to build a shared understanding of substance use from a health promotion perspective.
