The COVID-19 crisis has brought the importance of mental health—and current threats to it— into sharp focus. In response, a wealth of information, advice and resources to help manage the stress and anxiety caused by the disruptions in people’s daily live have been shared with Canadians.
One aspect of human activity that COVID-19 may leave an indelible mark on, is on the workplace. Knowing how we are doing in our day-to-day work, and how people are coping through these extraordinary times is critically important.
The Mental Health Commission of Canada and the Conference Board of Canada, with in-kind support from Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS), developed a survey to assess Canadians’ overall mental health and the strategies and supports used to deal with the crisis.
Whether you are currently employed or not; whether you work from home, are an essential COVID-19 worker on the frontlines or are still operating in a more traditional office or other work environment, we urge you to follow the link and complete the survey. Once completed, it will provide a snapshot of the current state of Canadians’ mental health, the coping strategies that people are using and perceived assessment of how they are working. Not only will this serve us as we move through the next few months, it will provide vital insight to developing strategies to improve mental health practices to benefit all Canadians, now and in the future.
Aggregate results will be made available to all participants at the end of May 2020.
