Health Care Providers

Doctors of BC recognizes that family physicians are just one of many resources available to youth who have mental health concerns. There are a range of other healthcare providers who are trained to assist youth with mental health problems, including counsellors, psychologists, nurse practitioners, mental health nurses, and psychiatrists.

Doctors of BC has compiled information and resources below that will be useful to health providers who see youth patients. Health providers should also refer to the ‘youth’ and ‘family’ sections of this website to familiarise themselves with resources that could be recommended to youth patients and their families.
