We're here to help

We're here to help you find quality information, learn new skills, and connect with key resources in BC. Explore strategies to help you take care of your mental health and use substances in healthier ways, find the information you need to manage mental health and substance use problems, and learn how you can support a loved one.

Mental health and substance use information you can trust.

Seven agencies came together for this project as the BC Partners, because we recognize that people need to have access to quality information on mental health, mental illness, and substance use problems.

Intergenerational Trauma issue of Visions Journal

Intergenerational trauma is the transmission of the effects of trauma from one generation to the next. Trauma can be transmitted in many ways, such as witnessing a parent or family member work through traumatic experiences or through a later generation mimicking coping strategies in response to stress or conflict. For people who continue to experience oppressions or harm, they may have to navigate inherited traumas along with their own traumas. Intergenerational trauma is complex and it can have a profound effect on entire communities, but it can also come with resiliency. In this issue of Visions, writers share not just how trauma affects them but how they work to understand their experiences, dismantle the shame and pain that keeps people isolated, and find healing.
