The BC Government needs to hear your ideas on how the province can recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on the mental health and wellness of the entire population, with many feeling isolated, anxious, worried, and having difficulties coping. Still, as the province continues to recover, we are faced with competing priorities and the risk that the needs of the most vulnerable are overlooked.
Now is your opportunity to #getloud and guarantee that mental health is prioritized alongside physical health and safety. The BC Government needs to hear your story and exactly what you need to stay well during this time of crisis.
We invite you to personalize CMHA BC's template letter!
Add your story after the line "My experience reflects this."
Some questions you may want to address when telling your story:
- How has COVID-19 impacted your mental health and substance use?
- What challenges have you had staying well and accessing health services?
- What supports would improve your quality of life?
- What do you think of the government's efforts so far? Are they doing enough for mental health? What else could they do?
