Open to Patient partners across the province

Last updated

The purpose of our project is to compile literature to identify promising programs and policies used to develop resources that will help to reduce mental health issues related to COVID-19 infection and recovery for different people. We would like patient advocates or people with lived or living experience with chronic disease, mental health problems or illnesses and/or substance use, to help contribute to this work.

What’s Involved:

The team has weekly meetings (online) that are usually at 9 am or 10 am on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays. We would like the patient advisors to attend the meetings as feasible and provide feedback on the process, documents that are circulated, ideas for conveying information to our project to people, etc.
