The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many disruptions in the lives of Canadians, including disruptions in access to and delivery of mental health and addiction services. This webinar will explore how the measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 have created challenges for those seeking care. It will explore the inequity that exists in access to services, and the opportunities for innovative solutions to support Canadians during a time when we are seeing a growing number reporting worsening mental health and increased substance use.
