We want to hear from you!

HeretoHelp produces Visions magazine, and stories from it are featured throughout the website and in our print publication.

One of our upcoming issues of Visions is focusing on Supported Housing and how it relates to mental well-being and recovery from mental health or substance use problems. 

We're currently looking for contributors to share their stories and struggles of finding and maintaining supported housing, whether you are the individual in the housing, or a family member who has been part of or a witness to the journey. We are not just talking about subsidized housing. We define supported housing as "affordable housing where the tenants have access to support services in addition to housing."

If this sounds like you, you need to be living in British Columbia, Canada, and ideally should not have shared your story in Visions before. 

You don't have to print your real name with the story. Articles are less than 2 pages long and you'd have at least a month to write.You'd even get a small $75 honorarium after publication if we ok you to write. And remember you don't have to be a "writer" to write for Visions. Our professional editor will work with you to shape your story. If you can write an email and have a story to tell, you can write for us. Interested? Please don't start writing just yet. Contact us at visions@heretohelp.bc.ca first and share a couple of sentences about your experience, and please include your community name, and a phone number as well!
