In this spirit of resilience, the Canadian Mental Health Association across Manitoba is proud to continue to offer essential mental health services during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. CMHA offices throughout the province have enhanced our services and are offering a ‘Wellness Support Response Line’. The Wellness Support Lines will help connect our staff across the province to community members. These services include peer support, BounceBack® CBT coaching for depression and anxiety, workplace and youth mental health education, brief intervention and supportive counselling and service navigation. These programs continue to provide evidence-based, compassionate and respectful services and programs to Manitobans.
We know this is a major event and it’s affecting all of us in different ways. CMHA and its staff want you to know we’re here to listen and help answer questions, provide information and referrals, and support you to have the skills and resources to cope with these challenges. The ‘Wellness Support Response Line’ is based on our Wellness and Peer Support models.
