Visions: BC's Mental Health and Addictions Journal

A Nationally Award-Winning Journal

Published quarterly, Visions journal provides a forum for the voices of people living with a mental illness or substance use problem, their family and friends, and service providers in BC. Visions is:

  • written by and for people with personal experience or interest in mental health or addictions issues and their families, service providers, and community partners

  • a resource for understanding mental health issues and learning ways to put leading mental health policies and programs into practice

  • a place where many perspectives can be heard - and which values and promotes contributions of all those who are touched by mental health and addictions issues

  • always trying to ask the question, What does it look like in real life? Why should this matter to me? How can I make a difference?

From its inception in 1997 to mid-2003, Visions was published by CMHA BC Division. Since the fall of 2003, Visions mental health and addictions journal has been published by the BC Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information, a group of mental health and addictions non-profits in BC, of which CMHA BC Division is a member.
