SHA Mental Health and Addictions Services During the Pandemic
As we gradually move back into our regular routines and work lives it is important to remember that mental health and addiction supports continue to be available across the province. Mental Health and Addictions Services has remained a priority for our care teams – services were and are still available for clients seeking mental health and addiction services during COVID-19. In the early days of COVID-19, we created access for some programs by supporting established online programs or through virtual care. Inpatient mental health units for both adults and children/youth remained open.
