Within Sight

mental health + substance use resources for multicultural communities

Within Sight enewsletter features BC resources about mental health, well-being, alcohol use and other drug use that support multicultural and multilingual communities.

In addition to keeping you up to date on new resources through our popular BC website HeretoHelp, we will feature other resources we like that can help you access resources in many languages. We will also profile resources we like that promote mental health and substance use dialogue among all British Columbians. Our goal is to bring these useful resources “within sight” of the service providers and communities.
