Fraser Health’s mental health and substance use web resource provides essential information to individuals and their families seeking support for mental health and/or substance use concerns.
"I'm excited about this new web resource because it's challenging enough to have a mental illness or support a loved one through it,” says Clara Sitar, Clinical Case Manager, Supported Housing and Residential Program, White Rock Mental Health and Substance Use Services. “Finding mental health information, resources and services should be easy.”
Clara, whose story is featured in the video below, has lived experience of mental illness. She got sick at age 17 while she was at university. Her journey with mental illness has been tough, but with treatment, respect and family support, today Clara is living a happy and fulfilling life. She is a proud mom of two boys, a social worker with Fraser Health and a public speaker. She maintains her well-being by being self-aware and proactive about managing her symptoms.
