CMHA Saskatoon is here with YOU in mind.
Who would have thought a year ago that we would be in the middle of something as unbelievable as a global pandemic! It’s been months of constant uncertainty, upheaval, and even worry. Every aspect of life has been touched – health, school, work, travel, relationships. Anxiety is a constant companion.
Everyone feels vulnerable right now. And everyone needs someone to talk to – someone who will listen without judgment. Someone who can provide encouragement, hope and answers that makes sense for your life now.
Now … imagine experiencing all of this while living with a serious disabling mental health need, coping with mounting fear while resources and supports disappear. Unsure how to maintain the careful balance you have created to support you on your mental health journey. Family, friends, and caregivers unable to drop in as frequently if at all. Feeling even more isolated and alone with every passing day.
“I am inquiring about some help for my panic during isolation. I have been dealing with this on my own for a few months now and have reached the end of being able to cope alone. This has become somewhat unbearable. I am dealing with panic attacks daily and nightly. I am feeling desperately alone.” Saskatoon Community Member
