Mapping and equalizing power: moving towards co-production in BC’s mental health and substance use services

Best practice in mental health and substance use services is person-centred, provides cultural safety, fosters trust, and supports empowerment. By mapping the power of peer workers in BC’s services, and by identifying and advocating for peer employment structures that support a shift in systemic power, this project aims to change deeply entrenched beliefs about the capability and the value provided by people with lived experience of mental health or substance use-related health issues. In intends to move BC towards a co-production model that blurs lines between service “provider” and “recipient”, a shift that has the potential to radically change BC’s mental health and substance use system.
