Welcome to Island Health

On August 1 st, we launched our new public website:


and a new website for medical staff:


Our website was developed in partnership with patients and residents of Vancouver Island and the surrounding regions. It's accessible, mobile friendly and flexible to help us evolve with our communities as we work towards excellent health and care for everyone, everywhere, every time.

Come visit the new sites and update your bookmarks. This www.viha.ca site will continue to be available for one month so that our staff and partners have time to update their links to the new site. You can still browse the old site but it will no longer be updated.

Adult Community Support Services (ACSS) provides community based case management services to support adults (clients) with severe and persistent mental illness such as Schizophrenia, Bipolar illness and major Depression.

Care plans are developed in collaboration with the client.  If a client is incapable of participating in the planning of his or her treatment, then family, friends and/or other relevant professionals are consulted.
