Mental Health Week

Hey everyone, we are marking the end of 2021’s Mental Health Week with this post of resources we found through the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA):

As well as other articles published for Mental Health Week, and more resources gathered together by CLBC.

Wellness Together Canada also offers resources tailored to coping with COVID-19. You can find more on their webpage here.

There is also a YouTube version of the Health Care Access Research and Developmental Disabilities virtual course for families and caregivers called “Mental Health for Adults with Developmental Disabilities during COVID-19.” You can find that series of videos here.

Healthy Eating Habits…

The Government of Canada has emailed bulletin reminders out about the importance of keeping healthy eating habits. Maintaining healthy habits is important, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here are some suggestions to try and make part of your healthy eating routine:

  • Planning regular times for meals each day.
  • Making half of your plate vegetables and fruits.
  • Planning your meals to help you cook more often.
  • Eating with others in your home, or virtually if you live alone.
