The Vancouver Local Action Team (LAT) was part of the provincial Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use (CYMHSU) Collaborative. Since the conclusion of this provincial initiative, the individuals and organizations involved in the Vancouver LAT have continued to work together. Our purpose is to support children, youth, and their families seeking and receiving timely access to local mental health and substance use resources. We believe that mental health is just as important as physical health.
Active member organizations include the Vancouver School Board, Vancouver Parks and Recreation, Vancouver Coastal Health, Vancouver Division of Family Practice, YWCA Metro Vancouver, Pacific Community Resources, Family Services of Greater Vancouver, Pacific Autism Network, and the Crisis Centre of BC. For more information about the Vancouver LAT and the Vancouver Division’s involvement. Each member is showcased via video below.
The guide was first compiled by the Vancouver LAT in 2017 and was fully revised in December 2021.
