Mental Health

Mental health treatment is a major priority for St. Paul’s population of emphasis, and the large number of socially marginalized clients from Vancouver’s Downtown East Side.

PHCRI, in partnership with groups like the Centre for Health Evaluation & Outcome Sciences and UBC Faculty of Medicine, have implemented research projects and treatment programs aimed at addressing mental health, addictions, homelessness and concurrent disorders. Initiatives like the Inner City Youth Program and the Health and Housing in Transition Study are exploring the integration of acute mental health treatment with community services focused on providing housing for vulnerable populations.
