Through the work of the Victoria Division of Family Practice Mental Health and Substance Use Care Access working group, we developed a resource guide to help GPs quickly access mental health and substance use (MHSU) services and resources, to support patients of all ages. The information in the guide provides a comprehensive overview of MHSU services in Victoria.
The guide is organized into three sections:
- Quick Reference Guides
- Health Authority/BC Government Mental Health and Substance Use Services
- Community Mental Health and Substance Use Services
Additionally, a separate appendix to the guide includes referral forms for MHSU services that require a physician’s referral.
The guide is dynamic and will be updated regularly on the VDFP website. We hope that you find the resource guide a valuable tool. Feedback and suggestions are welcomed.
