The Saskatoon branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) said it has set up a dedicated wellness support line.

Faith Bodnar, the executive director of CMHA Saskatoon, says the support line is for anyone who needs to talk about how they are doing during the pandemic. Referred to as the Echo Pandemic, the mental health issues will increase and touch everyone, mirroring the curve of the virus but lasting much longer. It’s also expected that once restrictions are lifted, mental health issues will continue for some time.

Anyone who needs to reach out can call the wellness support line at    306-270-3648.
