Staying Resilient During the COVID-19 Pandemic​

This vlog has been created in part as a response to these difficult times connected to the COVID- 19 pandemic, but also to remind us all that we do have tools to cope.

As we all know, the spread of COVID-19 has caused many Canadians to change their everyday lives to help “flatten the curve” to avoid a spike in cases that would overwhelm our health services. For some of you, that will mean that you have to self-isolate for two weeks, for others, it will mean that you are now working from home for the foreseeable future. Still others continue to have to go to your workplaces because of the essential nature of your work. Still others may face the prospect of job loss.

These are all difficult situations and everyone has their own response to stress. This is a good time to remember, however, that you have resiliency skills and you can cope. It’s also good to remember the core components of The Working Mind to help manage your stress as well as help others. Let me show you.

As part of this presentation, we are providing you with a document that you can download and follow along with or refer to after you have viewed this presentation.

We are in the process of developing a questions and answers section on our website and would like to hear from you. If you have any questions about mental health training please email them at
