Investing in community-based mental health services for long-term pandemic recovery

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused extreme national anxiety with mental health effects like nothing we have seen before. Research suggests that Canadians will still be struggling with their mental health long after a vaccine is available. The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) has made the case to the federal government that it must act now to respond to an “echo pandemic”. A healthy population and a healthy workforce will only be possible with the right mental health supports.

In order to meet the mental health needs in the COVID-19 recovery phase and beyond, CMHA has made recommendations to the federal government.
