We're In This Together
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many people being exposed to risk factors for poor mental health and substance use problems including:
- Uncertainty and fear
- A flood of news and information
- Feeling isolated
- Changes in how members of a household interact with each other
- Financial concerns
- Deteriorating health conditions
- Difficulties related to caregiving
Surveys conducted in 2020 found that a significant share of adults reported symptoms of anxiety or depression and an increase in substance use and suicidal thoughts.
We want to make sure our employees have access to resources such as webinars to assist them during this time.
