From hand sanitizer to masks and beyond, Canadian companies are stepping up to help lead the charge against the physical effects of COVID-19. No less important is the need for innovative solutions to address the pending wave of mental health issues facing people across the country.
Wellness Together Canada is Canada’s first and only online platform offering immediate mental health support for all Canadians, at no cost to individuals. Powered by Greenspace Health, the portal offers a range of different services, including a wellness self-assessment, self-guided courses and apps, peer support, and counselling by text, phone, or video.
Introduced by the Government of Canada, the portal is a joint venture between Stepped Care Solutions, Kids Help Phone, and Homewood Health — three of Canada’s leading mental health service providers. For this critical service to be made available to all Canadians, Greenspace Health has expanded upon its proven clinical technology, empowering individuals to access the level of mental health support they need when they need it.
“As mental health services nationwide have been experiencing unprecedented demand, there has never been a more important time to bring a scientific and technology-driven approach to mental health services,” says Jeremy Weisz, CEO of Greenspace Health. “This portal is designed to offer a full range of mental health support to people of all ages in every part of Canada. It’s a unique resource ready to help support Canadians and their mental health.”
