LTC+ – Mental Health and Resiliency Resources for Healthcare Providers, Staff and Leaders

Welcome to the Long Term Care Plus (LTC+) Mental Health and Resiliency Resources for Healthcare Providers, Staff and Leaders page.  

A crowdsourcing initiative entitled “Impacts of COVID-19 on Health Care Workers: Infection Prevention and Control” reported earlier this year that 70% of health care workers stated that their mental health was “somewhat worse now” or “much worse now” compared with before March 2020 (Statistics Canada). It has also been reported that over 40% of Canadian physicians are in advanced stages of burnout, nearly 40% of nurses say that they feel a high degree of burnout and 14% of general nurses have tested positive for post traumatic distress disorder.

 The resources listed below, while not exhaustive, use varied approaches to assist in providing support, guidance and tools for individuals, teams, leaders, and educators. These resources are designed for care providers, and it will be noted when they target LTC specifically. All materials in French are marked with an asterix and linked accordingly
