Mental Health Resources
Helpful resources for students and families:
The Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre is a provincial resource centre that provides mental health and substance use information, resources, and peer support to children, youth and their families from across BC.
AnxietyBC™ provides a rich resource of self-help information and programs, as well as resources for parents and caregivers. Our mission is to increase awareness, promote education and improve access to programs that work.
HeretoHelp is a website of the BC Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information. We’re working together to help people better prevent and manage mental health and substance use problems and live a healthier life.
This website is designed to help youth and young adults in British Columbia check out how they’re feeling and quickly connect to mental health resources and support. Support includes education, self-care tools, website links, and assistance in connecting to local professional resources.
If you (or a friend, peer or sibling) have been involved in a self/peer exploitation incident (otherwise known as “sexting”), we are here to help. This site provides you with guidance on steps you can take to get through this.
