Resources

We are always looking to get resources to help you learn more and get involved with our organization. Here are some of the sources of information and community that we encourage you to make use of.

Resource Room

The BCSS Victoria Resource Room has a collection of books and DVDs on mental illness and related subjects. Materials are organized by subject, including:

  • first person accounts
  • help for families
  • recovery
  • legal issues
  • self-help
  • medications

The Resource Room also has a collection of periodicals, journals, fact sheets, community resource information and reference materials. Items can be borrowed at no cost by BCSS Victoria members or by the public for a small fee.

The Resource Room is open at our 941 Kings Road location from Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
