The COVID-19 outbreak may be stressful for you – it is normal to have fear, anxiety, and strong emotional responses related to the impacts of coronavirus disease.

With this in mind, the national union formed a COVID-19 Mental Health Working Group to gather, create, and share important resources that members may find useful during the pandemic.

This resource uses a four-pillar approach to help identify key areas where support is needed, including relevant information and resources:

Mental Health and Wellness

Provides an overview of national supports available for those facing mental illness and/or addictions.

Quarantine and Isolation

Speaks to the impact isolation measures have on those experiencing domestic violence.

Challenging Stigma, Prejudice and Racism

Outlines the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on equity-seeking communities and ways you can combat harmful stigma, prejudice, and racism.

Take Action

Notes ways you can support others through sharing information and how to identify yourself as a mental health ally that people can reach out to.
