Mental Health Resources - We're in this together

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.

Maintaining mental health is a challenge for many of us at the best of times.

The health and economic impacts of COVID-19 are exacerbating these struggles for many and stretching the limits of mental health for people around the world, including Unifor members. If you are struggling with mental health and addictions
during this time we want you to know you are not alone – many of your friends and colleagues are experiencing the same struggles right now.

In normal times, 1 in 5 Canadians will struggle with mental illness. These afflictions are a disease not a choice. You deserve to get the help and support you need to manage these challenging times.

Each person’s struggle with mental health is different. The resources below can help you navigate the tremendous amount of resources available in our community to find the support that is right for you.
