In line with Mental Health Week, taking place from May 4 to May 10, 2020, we would like to share some information on subjects that are relevant to the health of the population. Please find some information below on the new Wellness Together Canada mental health and substance use support portal.
We invite you to share this message with your clients, partners and members of your respective networks:
The new Wellness Together Canada Portal can guide you to support and resources
COVID-19 has placed significant strain on individuals and families across the country who are being challenged in a number of ways because of isolation, financial and employment uncertainty and disruptions to daily life.
If you are struggling at home with anxiety, fear, violence, depression, problematic substance use or any other mental health concerns, there is help.
Adults and youth can find a full range of resources through the new Wellness Together Canada mental health and substance use support portal. This service provides free online tools, apps and connections to trained volunteers and qualified mental health professionals when needed. These also include modules for addressing low mood, worry, substance use, social isolation and relationship issues.
You can access the portal through Canada.ca/coronavirus or the Canada COVID-19 App.
To help us amplify the Wellness Together Canada portal on social channels, we also invite you to share and follow these Health Canada and Public Health Agency of Canada publications:
