Mental Illness Awareness Week MAP Resources


October 2, 2020


October 4-10, 2020 is Mental Illness Awareness Week in Canada. To help bring awareness to this important aspect of total wellbeing, our Members’ Assistance Program has launched a new microsite – Depression and the pandemic: a deep dive.


The microsite provides you with articles, infographics and a video to help you with:


  • The relationship between COVID-19 and depression
  • How physical activity can help with depression during the pandemic
  • Facing loneliness during the pandemic


MAP is a confidential counselling, referral and information service that you can access if you’re dealing with mental health challenges or need advice on topics such as physical fitness, nutrition or parenting.
