Action needed to address COVID-19’s hidden tragedy National Grief Advocates Urge Support for Grieving Canadians & Health Workers

The coronovirus that ravages the lungs in some who get infected is also wreaking havoc with the mental health of Canadians. Whether you are on the front-lines in a hospital, unable to hold a proper funeral for a loved one who has died or you’ve lost your job, this outbreak is causing widespread grief.

The Canadian Grief Alliance – a coalition of national leaders in grief and bereavement – is urging the Government of Canada and the provinces and territories to bolster the country’s grief services to meet the growing demand. The Alliance is urging the Federal Government to invest in a National Grief Strategy, increased grief support and research to manage the pending onslaught of depression, anxiety and suicides that are likely to result from this pandemic.

The Alliance includes front-line providers – psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and therapists – as well as academics and organizations providing grief services across the country. The group is convened by the Canadian Virtual Hospice (virtualhospice.ca), an internationally recognized charitable organization that serves 2.1 million users annually.
