Wellness Together Canada: Mental Health and Substance Use Support

Dramatic changes to daily routines, fear of isolation, possible unemployment and pending financial implications are just some of the uncertainties brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. These and other challenges can significantly affect both the physical and mental well-being of Canadians.

We are proud to support Health Canada’s new portal, Wellness Together Canada. This portal provides free online resources, tools, apps and valuable information to Canadians looking for support on mental health and substance use issues.

Canadians seeking assistance can also connect to peer support workers, social workers, psychologists and other professionals for confidential chat sessions or phone calls.

Access the portal to learn more about the resources available to you.
