New COVID-19 Mental Health Resource Hub Provides Canada's Youth Easy-Access to Support
Jack.org, School Mental Health Ontario and Kids Help Phone launch a COVID-19 Mental Health Resource Hub, to provide Canada's youth with easy-to-access education, tools, support and the reliable information they need, all in one place. The hub was developed in response to a surge in demand for self-care resources, mental health education and trusted support services during this global pandemic. Kids Help Phone has seen an increase in service demand of more than 300% over the last 2 weeks. It's imperative that we keep mental health top of mind as we all navigate these extraordinary times of physical isolation and reduced access to in-person community services.
