Mental Wellness Supports for Healthcare Workers

Has your mental wellness been impacted by the pandemic? Working on the frontlines can take a toll. Many are experiencing feelings of stress, grief, or burnout.  It is important to recognize the impact of this stress on your well-being. It’s ok to say it – this is really hard. I need help.


If you are a health care worker and you feel like your mental health has been impacted due to COVID-19, you can quickly access supports. This support includes resources you can access on your own and through professional peer group supports like ECHO Coping with COVID, designed for health care providers and ECHO Care of the Elderly for LTC: COVID-19, designed for those working in long-term care settings.


You are also able to get confidential support by phone or online with a mental health professional through the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences,  St. Joseph’s Healthcare, The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre (includes intake and support in French), and Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care.


Now is the time to take care of yourself. To learn more or access these supports, please visit
