    Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy for Adults With Mental Health Problems

    Working to improve access in BC

    Accessing cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is not easy for many adults in British Columbia who have mental health problems. Because of this, BC Mental Health & Addiction Services (BCMHAS), an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority, formed the BC Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Network in late 2008. The intent is to improve access to CBT across the province and to strengthen province-wide collaboration.

    The BC CBT Network is made up of clinical and administrative representatives from BCMHAS, the Ministry of Health Services (MoHS), the Ministry of Children and Family Development and each of the five regional health authorities. These representatives meet regularly to advise and coordinate initiatives to build CBT capacity throughout BC.
    The work of the BC CBT Network is guided in part by a provincial CBT service framework that was drafted by BCMHAS and MoHS in early 2009.1 This framework outlines a broad-based plan for strengthening CBT services in BC.

    The vision of the BC CBT Network is that every person in BC will have equal access to high-quality CBT, no matter where they live. This will lead to better care and treatment for people with mental health problems.
