Similkameen Mental Health Project

The following is an invitation to participate in a research project conducted by The University of British Columbia and Interior Health:

We would like to invite you to participate in a research project focusing on mental health in older adults in the Similkameen Valley. We are asking you to take part in a focus/discussion group (1.5 – 2 hours in length) to discuss your experiences, services and supports that are working well, the gaps in mental health services available in your community, and what might help. You will receive $20.00 to help cover your travel costs.

You are invited to participate in the focus group if you:

  • are 50 years or older
  • have a mental health concern (you do not need an official diagnosis) or have a family member or close friend with a mental health concern
  • live in the Similkameen communities of Keremeos, Hedley, Princeton, or surrounding areas

Princeton Focus Group: Tuesday, June 7th 2016, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at Princeton Family Services, 56 Kenley Avenue in Princeton.

If you are interested in participating or would like more information please contact: Tracy Janzen (Co-Investigator) at 250-878-3291 or email:
