Supporting the mental health of Canadians in times of pandemic: Exploring the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on wellbeing and validating context-appropriate e-mental health interventions

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused disruptions in multiple spheres of life and increased psychological distress, depression, and anxiety in many Canadians. With practices of social distancing implemented by the governments combined with an increased demand for psychological support, mental health agencies are forced to be creative and develop e-mental health interventions and tools. The current project has two primary aims: 1) to better understand the longitudinal impacts of the COVID-19 on Canadians’ mental health to identify what helps (or hinders) coping with the current situation; and to 2) guide the development of e-mental health tools adapted to the needs of the population. Seven interns from three universities will contribute to the research activities in partnership with Revivre, an organization offering support to people struggling with anxiety, depression, and bipolarity symptoms. This partnership will provide Revivre with evidence about the needs of Canadians and ways to support them through validated online interventions.
