Mental health unit opened at St. Paul’s Hospital
Six months after Vancouver’s mayor declared a mental health crisis, the province has introduced a couple of measures to help out.
St. Paul’s Hospital is opening a nine-bed Acute Behavioural Stabilization Unit built to help patients for an average of two days each. An assertive outreach team will also help people with mental illness connect with services.
