Mental Health Recovery Partners
Welcome to our new name and brand to better serve our community! Formerly known as BCSS Victoria, BCSS Nanaimo and BCSS Campbell River have all rebranded to "Mental Health Recovery Partners (MHRP)" to help across Vancouver Island and beyond! We continue to provide our expertise in areas of psychosis including people with mental health illnesses such as first break psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar and major depression including people who use substances, especially in this post cannabis legalization period.
We are aligned with the work of the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) with our focus on Recovery-Oriented Practice and philosophy. This is based on latest evidence and innovations in mental health. We are proud of our new name and have heard the collective community in seeking a more inclusive name and brand. We proudly partner with other services and our funder and donor base to provide hope and recovery to our broader community.
Our new name does not indicate an abrupt shift in our programs or services. Instead, it reflects what we do and who we support. We will continue to provide public education for schools and community partners, family support groups, peer support, advocacy, respite and Memorial Fund as well as other great services! We have peer support training and offer Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) available.
Become involved as a volunteer, donor or to explore a recovery path as a family or person living with a mental health issue with or without concurrent substance use.
We look forward to engaging with you soon!
