The BC Crisis Line Network is actively engaged in systems change and action to address access to mental health crisis care and suicide intervention across British Columbia. We aim to tackle the root causes of the challenges in a system that has not fully reached its potential and contribute to changes in the province's health, mental health and public safety mandates that lead to lasting change, trauma-informed care, and sustainable, equitable funding.

The BC Crisis Line Network provides advice and recommendations to Provincial and Federal Ministries and Committees on topics related to suicide, mental health, and crisis.
Mental Health Crisis Response System.
We support a crisis mental health model that leans into least restrictive and least costly approaches for British Columbians, a model that is trauma-informed and puts a person's dignity and agency first.
