Mental Health Resources for Staff

August 7 2020

The unprecedented changes that have come from COVID-19 and uncertainty around the future can be difficult for anyone to navigate, but especially for health care and social services staff who are also walking alongside those in vulnerable situations. Compassion Network has compiled a list of online mental health resources designed to assist anyone struggling to stay calm and positive during these times. Front-line staff, we hope you’ll take a moment to care for yourselves.

Members of our board and staff are gathered today to learn about reconciliation in a day facilitated by Indigenous Health (WRHA). One of the striking images we've seen is this tree illustrating the roots and the impacts of racism and discrimination on a patient's experience - the Determinants of Health. We're thankful to be able to spend this time together and to be able to discuss how we can more actively engage in reconciliation.
Les membres de notre conseil d'administration et notre personnel sont réunis aujourd'hui pour en apprendre davantage sur la réconciliation en une journée facilitée par Indigenous Health (WRHA).
