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 Workplace Transitions, particularly leaving the workforce (e.g., retirement, job loss, sick leave etc) and the connections to mental health and substance use. Leaving the workforce may be sudden or planned, voluntary or involuntary, temporary or permanent and the mental health or substance use connections may be positive, negative or mixed.

We've got most of our personal stories but are still looking for one more: an individual whose story features addiction or substance use and a workplace transition. First preference to males.

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

Contributors need to be living in BC and can be any age. You don't have to print your real name with the story. Articles are less than 2 pages long and you'd have a month to write. You'd (each) 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.
