Mental Health Impacts, Inequities and Investments for BC’s Recovery
Many months have passed since COVID-19 was declared a public health emergency. We have all had to adjust to a “new normal” where we socially distance and adhere to strict guidelines to minimize the spread of the virus. These efforts have kept many of us physically safe, but have had a tremendous impact on our mental health and wellness. Women, parents with children, and those already experiencing health and social harms —Indigenous peoples, people of colour, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ folks, and people with low incomes—are among the most impacted.
In this webinar, CMHA BC will convene a panel of community leaders and researchers to discuss the latest statistics on how people are coping, how the pandemic has revealed and deepened existing inequities, and how the Province can invest for better mental health.
