This blog has been created in part as a response to these difficult times connected to the COVID-19 pandemic, but also to remind us all that we do have tools to cope.
The spread of COVID-19 has caused many Canadians to change their everyday lives to help “flatten the curve” to avoid a spike in cases that would overwhelm our health services.
For some of you, that will mean that you have to self-isolate for two weeks, for others, it will mean that you are now working from home for the foreseeable future. Still others continue to have to go to your workplaces because of the essential nature of your work. Still others may face the prospect of job loss.
These are all difficult situations and everyone has their own response to stress. This is a good time to remember, however, that you have resiliency skills and you can cope.
We are providing you with a document that you can download and follow along.
