COVID-19 Mental Health Guide

Unifor has launched a hub for member information about the pandemic at unifor.org/COVID19 and encourages members to check the site regularly for updates.

One out of every five Canadians will experience mental illness in normal times. It is both okay to feel out of sorts because of the global COVID-19 crisis. During the pandemic, we must normalize, listen to, and empathize with those experiencing distress. Additionally, we remind those experiencing mental illness to find supports, as limited as they may be, that work for them in order to navigate through this crisis. Now more than ever, we must find community and support one another.

Here you will find resources related to staying well during the pandemic, the implications of isolation and quarantine, the disproportionate impact the crisis is having on equity seeking groups, community supports, and so much more.

We encourage you to explore this resource and use it to find helpful and appropriate supports.
