COVID-19 Update - January 28, 2021

Creston, BC January 28, 2021: COVID-19 has affected every aspect of our lives, including our mental health. According to Canadian Mental Health Association, 38% of Canadians say their mental health has declined due to COVID-19, and people already struggling with their mental health were two times more likely to say their mental heath has declined from the pandemic (from Canadian Mental Health Association). It’s important to know that you aren’t alone if you’re feeling adverse effects of COVID-19 on your mental health and equally important to know that there are resources available to support you.  For a list of Provincial and Federal mental health supports visit: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/health/managing-your-health/mental-health-substance-use/virtual-supports-covid-19
