Coping in Covid

Your Mental Health During The Pandemic

During this very difficult time, we know that the stress of working in healthcare along with worries about childcare and family can make it hard to cope. In this issue, we have included some resources that we hope can help you access some coping and self care while you are looking after so many others.

A group of Mental Health Professionals in Ontario have volunteered to offer free teletherapy to those working in Healthcare during the COVID-19 Pandemic. If you feel the need to reach out, register here.

Be Safe. Be Well.

Sincerely,
Lung Health Foundation
Ontario Respiratory Care Society & Ontario Thoracic Society

Please Join Our “Call In” Lung Health Support Group

We realize that a diagnosis of lung disease brings endless questions and concerns. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. We welcome you to join our first call in lung health support group.

This opportunity is ideal for people who do not have a support group in their community or who may be unable to attend an in-person meeting.

This phone based lung health support group will begin on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 from 11:00 am – 12:00 noon and will occur on the second Wednesday of every month following. It is open for anyone living with, or caring for someone with, a chronic lung condition.

Support group meetings will include:

  • An opportunity to share your experiences
  • An opportunity to ask questions of others living with a chronic lung condition and of Lung Health Foundation staff
  • Information on diagnosis, disease management and resources

For more information or to add your name to the group distribution list, please contact:
