The ongoing pandemic is a tough situation for everyone, writers included. Whether you are missing family and friends, trying to teach grade six math in the middle of a work day, or struggling to focus on your craft, there are many online resources out there to help you organize your thoughts and calm your anxieties.
The uncertainty of the current situation can exacerbate pre-existing mental health issues, with lockdown isolation often leading to loneliness and depression. If any of these scenarios seem familiar, know that you are not alone.
We encourage writers to seek out self care, connect with community, and access treatment from mental health professionals. The Writers' Trust has compiled the resources below, tailored to Canadian writers, to help you and your family get through these challenging times.
