As COVID-19 continues to be at the forefront of everyone’s minds in Canada and around the world, many are grappling to adjust to new norms for return to work and day-to-day life. At the same time, communities are coping with tremendous loss, grief, and trauma, while facing an uncertain future. It’s normal to feel concerned about what’s next and it’s important to continue using the strategies and tools you’ve relied on to support yourself and your family in this challenging time.
