Patient Experiences with Short-Stay Mental Health and Substance Use Services in British Columbia

The impact of mental health and substance use problems in British Columbia is significant. Over any 12 month period, about one in five individuals in the province will experience significant mental health and/or substance use problems, leading to personal suffering and interference with life goals.

The B.C. Ministry of Health and its six health authorities identify and commission patient experience of care surveys to guide improvement initiatives throughout the province. In 2010, the short-stay mental health and substance use sector was identified as a priority sector for surveying (R. A Malatest, Nov 2011)

For information regarding the results of this survey, please see the following documents.
