MENTAL WELLNESS IN ISOLATION



Social isolation is necessary in times like these, but that doesn't make it any easier. It's important to make sure that we're staying connected with each other, whether it's a phone call to your parents to check in on their well-being or Skyping with your friend to talk about what you're bingeing on Netflix. It's also important to make time for hobbies, learn some new skills, and try to enjoy a bit of sunshine in your own backyard (but please stay at least 2 meters away from your neighbours!).


Discouraging headlines and over-exposure to social media can have a negative effect on our mental wellness, so the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) has released a guide to staying informed about COVID-19 while preserving your mental well-being:
