[WEBINAR] The Relationship Between Mental Health and Substance Use During the Pandemic

April 29, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all Canadians and increased stress on many fronts. The impacts of the crisis on Canadians’ mental health are becoming increasingly clear. Furthermore, alcohol and cannabis use has also increased.

In partnership with the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) and the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA), Leger has been conducting ongoing polling to monitor how the pandemic is impacting Canadians’ mental health and substance use.
