As cases of COVID-19 continue to rise globally and across Canada, an increasing number of employees and their family members are experiencing increased levels of anxiety. It is normal during this time of uncertainty for employees to speculate on the potential spread of the virus and to experience understandable reactions from worry to anxiety. When faced with uncertainty, we experience physical, emotional and behavioural reactions. We all react somewhat differently.
As a reminder, you have access to i-Volve, Homewood Health’s Online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. i-Volve is a bilingual, web-based solution designed to treat members struggling with anxiety and/or mild depression. This innovative treatment program will guide you through exercises that examine and test how you interpret and perceive external stimulation. These insights will help you change and adapt the ways in which you think, feel, and react during anxious scenarios and situations. i-Volve will help you to identify, challenge and overcome anxious thoughts, behaviours and emotions.

Wishing you all the best,
