Bell Let's Talk Day is coming on Jan. 28 – supporting our mental health and fostering resilience is more important than ever. Later this week, UHN News will publish a story including a video with
Susan Abbey(Psychiatrist-in-Chief), who will lead us through a brief exercise that can help when we're feeling overwhelmed. Different mental health supports will work for different people; the hope is to equip TeamUHN with a variety of supports so they can assemble a personalized 'tool box' of effective strategies. For additional mental health support, please consider using the
UHN Cares program (Corporate Intranet > COVID-19 Preparedness > Mental Health Supports) or speak with your primary care provider.
