Interior Health creates new service for mental health and substance abuse – Okanagan

Interior Health has made it easier for people to access their community mental health and substance abuse supports, with a new phone number that can easily be remembered: 310-MHSU (6478).

The phone service was developed in response to feedback from the public, as people were asking for a more simple way to access community support. 

The phone service is available for anyone within the Interior Health region.
