Inner health has made it easier for people to access their support for mental health and substance abuse in the community. The new phone number is easy to remember: 310-MHSU (6478).
The phone service was developed in response to public feedback as people asked for an easier way to access community support.
Telephone service is available to anyone in the Interior Health area.
The 310 MHSU phone service connects callers to Interior Health’s mental health services.
The health authority says the new phone service will not replace any existing numbers for mental health, acute or emergency services, or for “The Interior Crisis Line” (1-888-352-2273).
For those in need of psychological support and under the age of 19, visit B.C. Child and Adolescent Mental Health for Resources.
