#GetReal for Mental Health Week: Alcohol Consumption and Substance Use During COVID-19

May 5 @ 13:30 - 15:00 EDT

Anxious? Stressed? Depressed? No matter how COVID-19 has you feeling, this Mental Health Week, you’re invited to #GetReal about how you feel by naming, not numbing, your emotions.

Our expert panel will tackle the topic of Canadians’ increased alcohol consumption and substance use in coping with their mental distress during the pandemic and how these challenges may manifest themselves in the workplace.

Join us for this national conversation on mental health and substance use and learn about:

drivers that can lead to substance use and addiction
signs that someone may be struggling with substance use
starting and sustaining the conversation to encourage help-seeking behaviour
suggesting healthier coping mechanisms and referring to the right resources
and much more!
Presented by the Centre of Expertise on Mental Health in the Workplace and the Canada School of Public Service, in collaboration with the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Dr. Hayley Hamilton, Senior Scientist, Institute for Mental Health Policy Research, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health
Catherine Paradis, Senior Research and Policy Analyst, Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction

Anxiété? Stress? Dépression? Peu importe les émotions que vous fait vivre la pandémie de COVID-19, nous vous invitons à #ParlerPourVrai de ce que vous ressentez en nommant, plutôt qu’en engourdissant, vos émotions, à l’occasion de la Semaine de la santé mentale.

Notre groupe d’experts parlera de l’augmentation de la consommation d’alcool et d’autres substances psychoactives pour surmonter la détresse mentale qu’engendre la pandémie chez les Canadiens, ainsi que des répercussions de cette consommation accrue au travail.

Joignez-vous à nous pour cette conversation nationale sur la santé mentale et la consommation de substances psychoactives, et apprenez-en davantage sur, entre autres :

les facteurs qui peuvent mener à la consommation de substances psychoactives et à la dépendance;
les signes indiquant qu’une personne peut être aux prises avec la toxicomanie;
les façons d’entamer et de maintenir la conversation afin d’encourager la recherche d’aide;
les mécanismes d’adaptation sains et l’orientation vers les bonnes ressources.
Cet événement est présenté par le Centre d’expertise sur la santé mentale en milieu de travail et l’École de la fonction publique du Canada, en collaboration avec l’Association canadienne pour la santé mentale.
