Inadequate Access to Acute Psychiatric Beds in British Columbia

Is Anybody Listening?

The British Columbia Schizophrenia Society and the British Columbia Psychiatric Association have worked together to examine and report on one of the most common and troubling elements of the mental health care system for British Columbians dealing with chronic and severe psychiatric illnesses.

Their report was created because both the British Columbia Schizophrenia Society and the British Columbia Psychiatric Association hear serious complaints about the problems that arise from these bed shortages.

The timely access to psychiatric beds in acute care hospitals is an essential and critical service for people suffering from serious mental illness.
