Fraser Health’s online mental health and substance use resource -- fraserhealth.ca/mentalhealth
-- provides essential information to individuals and their families seeking support for mental health and/or substance use concerns.
"I'm excited about this new web resource because it's challenging enough to have a mental illness or support a loved one through it. Finding mental health information, resources and services should be easy," says Clara.
