MENTAL HEALTH

WEEK

The Canadian Mental Health Association is urging Canadians to “get real” about what they’re going through during this pandemic - an unprecedented time that has brought mental health into the spotlight perhaps more than ever before.

 

As part of the organization’s 69th edition of Mental Health Week, CMHA is focusing on social connections and their importance in maintaining good mental health.

ECONOMIC IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON CANADA'S MOST VULNERABLE

While more data and more certainty about COVID-19 and the unprecedented global effort to contain it are needed to quantify the toll this will take on Canada’s economy,  the economic impact is being felt from coast to coast to coast in real time and will have its most immediate effects on the most vulnerable of Canadians.  


Dr. Kelly Ernst is the Centre for Newcomers Vice President of Vulnerable Populations. Here he breaks down the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canada into three categories - no to low impact, medium impact and the most highly vulnerable -and offers his thoughts on what we can all do to help. 

HOW CAN YOU HELP NEWCOMERS & REFUGEES DURING COVID-!9?

We have been flooded with a number of calls and messages asking how the community can help newcomers. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!


We at the Centre for Newcomers are committed to helping newcomers to Calgary get through the COVID-19 emergency and you too can be a part of this.
