To tackle opioid crisis, ask why society produces mass despair

Two UBC professors were quoted in a story in The Tyee about the opioid crisis.

Diane McIntosh, a clinical professor in UBC’s department of psychiatry, wrote that she believes the crisis “is due, to a great extent, to the willful blindness of all levels of government through the inadequate resourcing of mental health care.”

Dan Bilsker, a UBC clinical professor, was quoted about possible reasons men commit suicide or overdose.
