CAMH survey shows pandemic affecting mental health, but anxiety levels may be easing

“Canadians are experiencing a tremendous amount of stress and anxiety,” says Wells. “They may have lost their job due to the pandemic, they may be caring for children at home while also balancing work responsibilities, and they’re socially isolated right now.”

“The survey’s findings will be posted on the hospital’s website on June 17 alongside tools and resources for anyone who is feeling vulnerable. CAMH also plans to conduct at least four more similar surveys to continue monitoring the mental health of Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
