New Information Bulletin: When a Spouse Has a Mental Illness


As a result of feedback that we   have been receiving about the  latest newsletter formats, we have moved towards providing online information bulletins that round up resources and mental health information from various sources including organizations who are a part of the BC Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information. This is a group of non-profit agencies that provide good-quality information to help individuals and families maintain or improve their mental well-being. The BC Partners members are AnxietyBC, BC Schizophrenia Society, Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research, Canadian Mental Health Association’s BC Division, Institute of Families for Child and Youth Mental Health, Jessie’s Legacy eating disorders prevention and awareness (a Family Services of the North Shore program) and Mood Disorders Association of BC (a branch of Lookout Housing and Health Society). The BC Partners are funded by BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority. For more information, visit

We will send out brief summaries alerting subscribers when a new information bulletin is posted.

Our latest information bulletin, When a Spouse Has a Mental Illness, acknowledges the challenges spouses face when their partner has a mental illness. This is a helpful resource for spouses and other family members to know they are not alone in their experiences and find books, information, programs and support groups to help them cope. Feel free to make a comment or suggestion on the information bulletin if there any resources that were not included in the information bulletin that you found useful.
