Mental health

Many of us are experiencing stress and anxiety as we adapt to a new way of living and working during COVID-19. If you or your loved ones are struggling to take care of your mental health, we encourage you to make the most of tools and resources available to federal employees and the Canadian public.

Employees are also welcome to contact Workplace Well-Being for additional resources.

DFO’s Workplace Well-Being (WWB) team continues to provide tips to foster mental health and a range of services to employees, including informal conflict resolution and resources to support mental health.
