SEIU-West Education Committee is encouraging our members to seek out the opportunities to take education on mental health.
In a report released by Statistics Canada, seven in 10 healthcare workers reported worsening mental health during the pandemic.
The Education Committee has researched several options to share with you:
Canadian Mental Health Association Saskatoon Branch has free online courses:
- COVID fatigue
- Mental Health in the Workplace
- Stress in the Workplace
- Strong Families: Assertive Communication
- Strong Families: Building Boundaries
- Strong Families: Forgiveness
- Workplace Wellness
Through McKerracher Centre, there is help as well. They have 4 programs a year:
- Recovery Program,
- Peer Support Program,
- Seniors Program,
- Recreation Therapy,
These are free to attend, but they advise to call ahead to reserve the spot.
Their programs are in-person.
You can call their intake line at 306-655-7777 for assistance.
The Schizophrenia Society has a partnership program to offer presentations. Their video is really interesting and can be found here.
And Saskatchewan Health Authority offers supports Mental Health and Addictions Services as well.
We know that these are trying times, but know that you're not alone. There is help. Sk.211.ca is another great list of resources.
