Needs Based Planning of Mental Health and Substance Use Services in British Columbia

June 2017-May 2019

Building off of the work completed in Phase 1 of the Prevalence & Distribution Study, this phase will involve: (1) the development of detailed ideal suites of services for thirteen selected DSM-5 disorders, and (2) the integration and sizing of these service suites across a tiered functional framework (accounting for comorbidty).  

This second phase is a two-year project (June 2017 to May 2019) supported by the Ministry of Mental Health and Addiction and the BC Mental Health Foundation that aims to provide a comprehensive estimation of mental health and substance use disorder needs for adults in BC.
