BE WELL: Mental Health First Aid

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.

The Mental Health Commission of Canada has a guide to Mental Health First Aid, you can check it out and make your personalized self-care and resilience plan.

Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine…

A few weeks ago we posted an update from CLBC on COVID-19 vaccine information. The ImmunizeBC website also has FAQs on their website here.

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.

Find it all here.
