Covid-19 and Mental Health

Home » Articles » Covid-19 and Mental Health

No matter how you think about it, Covid-19 has directly affected all of us. Many of us have lost loved ones, had our day-to-day routines disrupted, and had our personal and professional lives put on hold. As we all know the physical consequences of covid-19, its psychological impact has been left in the dark. 

As you may know, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is commemorating its 70th Mental Health Awareness Week from May 3rd to May 9th. The theme of this year is “#GetReal”, where CHMA wants everyone to “Name it, don’t numb it” by embracing ALL of your emotions, and that during these times of isolation and disconnection, feeling lonely and anxious is okay.

At canaPHEM, while we believe that mental health awareness is always important, we want to shed more light on the difficulties that many of us have experienced during the covid-19 pandemic. The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) has revealed just how detrimental covid-19 protocols have been on Canadians psychological health. Many Canadians have increased feelings of loneliness, anxiety, and depression throughout the pandemic, with many turning to drugs and alcohol to cope. With many of us relying on routine, social interactions, and our interests/hobbies to lead a healthy lifestyle, this has left us with little to no options. 

Here at canaPHEM, we want to provide our clients and community with the right products and services to help our return to normal be safe and quick.
