Hi everyone, as part of our focus on Health & Safety this month, we wanted to look at ways to support better mental health.
The Government of Canada webpages have information about how people react differently to stressful situations (like the COVID-19 pandemic). The Mental Health Continuum Model (picture below) helps visualize and explain how important it is to take care of your mental health.
Today we are sharing a fantastic resource on the BCCDC website that goes through decision-making considerations (whether or not to get the vaccine), what you can expect when you go for your vaccine (first dose and second dose), what you can expect after you get your vaccine, and a video about the vaccine science, too.
Hi everyone, CLBC has issued an update about COVID-19 vaccination for people who are eligible to receive CLBC supports. You can read the full update here. There is also a short video for self-advocates with more information about getting vaccinated, available here. Check it out!
The BC Government has announced that people who are identified as being clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) will be able to get their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in the next few weeks, including people who receive support from CLBC. Check out InclusionBC’s news bulletin for more information. Those eligible will receive a letter in the mail in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
