The global pandemic has had a profound impact on many aspects of our lives, particularly our mental health. The change in routine, added stress and increased isolation have had a compounding effect on our mental wellbeing.

In this session, led by Ted Bober, M.S.W., R.S.W. of the Ontario Medical Association, you’ll get to know how the pandemic has impacted our mental health, and the social/emotional challenges expected to emerge in the fall.
