Once again this year, the pandemic has put a lot of people to the test and the repercussions on the mental health of the population are worrying. The other crisis, the opioid crisis, has also affected a number of people. As FOUNDRY BC psychiatrist and CEO Steve Mathias explains, in 2021, no one was spared.
” It’s a difficult year. We are seeing rates of depression and anxiety like never before, especially among young people, but also with adults. We see people losing their jobs, who are isolated, home is not always a safe place for young people “
During the holiday season, Steve Mathias suggests that people hang out, outside, while respecting health measures, because it is essential to find each other and to keep hope that the pandemic will end in the more or less near future.
