The Impact of COVID-19 on Rural and Remote Mental Health and Substance Use – Webinar

This webinar, presented in partnership with the University of British Columbia (Okanagan) and the Rural Coordination Centre of B.C., discusses community perspectives on the unique mental health and substance use challenges COVID-19 poses for rural and remote communities. It builds on an October 2021 policy brief, whose analysis and recommendations are brought to life through a case study from Princeton, B.C.
