WCB Claims for Mental Injuries are Imminent

From Canadian HR Reporter:

According to a new survey from Sun Life, more than half of Canadians (56%) say that COVID is harming their mental health, and 42% are currently seeking treatment for support.

Among those actively seeking help, 64% are reaching out to friends and family and 62% are staying busy while at home. 40% are accessing self-help online while 30% are seeking medical advice or treatment. Among those seeking treatment or support, 45% are women and 38% are men, found the survey of 1,000 respondents.

Canadians’ mental health and well-being remain down despite a slowing of infections and a phased reopening of their economies, according to a report from Morneau Shepell.

“The continued compromise to Canadians’ mental health and wellbeing demonstrates that there is still much work to be done to help mitigate this critical dimension of the public health crisis,” says Stephen Liptrap, CEO of Morneau Shepell. As we start to see the end of the strict lockdowns, we need to remain vigilant about support for mental health and not take our eyes off that issue.”
