GOOD NEWS - free access to Psychologists for frontline workers.
Ontario front-line workers and their dependents can now access psychologists at no cost through 211 during COVID 19
  • This partnership will enable frontline workers without extended health benefits to access psychological services at no cost throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic response.
  • This announcement expands OPA’s current Disaster Response Network (DRN) program in Toronto with 211 Central to the rest of the province. The DRN program can provide up to 6 mental health treatment sessions with a psychologist at no cost for frontline workers in any industry, and their dependants, who may have developed mental health struggles and have no, or limited, extended health coverage. Frontline persons requiring mental health coverage can be referred and guided by calling 211.

  • VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
    BVA is seeking volunteers who are able to assist residents in self isolating, unable to go grocery shopping, or pickup needed prescriptions. If you are able to assist, or need assistance, please contact our BVA president, Harold Rosenfeld.           Contact information: go to Contact Us.

    WHAT YOU CAN DO TO SUPPORT OTHERS:

    Wash your hands - don't touch your face - wear a mask
Help your neighbours (even a phone call helps), social distancing (2 metres, or 6 feet)
SHOP once every 10 days. Shop with purpose - take a list, do not browse, shop alone (if possible).
Wear a mask (you can make your own) - INSTRUCTIONS from Toronto's Michael Garron Hospital
