History of Community Mental Health in the Vancouver Area (1973 – 2000) This is a Canadian created resource(CC BY-NC)

For some time I have been wanting to capture the story of the development of the community mental health system in Vancouver. It’s a story of visionary thinkers, administrators, service providers, clients and family members who, together, created a unique, world-renowned system known as the Greater Vancouver Mental Health Service (GVMHS).
