Video: Training mental health workers to help people find jobs

Finding meaningful work can change the lives of people with serious mental illness or a substance use problem.

That's the key issue behind a new Douglas College initiative that will provide training to mental health and employment practitioners.

Funded by $75,000 from the B.C. Ministry of Advanced Education, the pilot project offers education sessions to practitioners with Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health.
