Mental Health and Wellness

  • Kids Help Phone – Resources, Articles, Immediate Support Options
  • Wellness Together Canada – a portal with mental health resources for youth and adults developed by a number of familiar and reputable partners. Wellness Together Canada was funded by the Government of Canada in response to the unprecedented rise in mental distress due to the COVID-19 pandemic. People are being challenged like never before due to isolation, physical health concerns, substance use concerns, financial and employment uncertainty, and the emotional dialogue around racial equality. We’re all going through this together, and we believe that mental health is a journey, not a destination. Each day, we can take a step for our own wellbeing. Wellness Together Canada is here to support everybody on that journey.
