Now that we have moved past the emergency phase of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada has transitioned away from Wellness Together Canada as of April 3, 2024. There are still a wide range of mental health, general wellbeing and substance use services available to people living in Canada, and Canadians abroad. To anyone struggling across the country, it is important to know that help will continue to be available, where and when you need it.
