CAMH has a covid coping page: ... h-covid-19

Holiday celebration alternatives: ... -covid-19/

Maybe your own families have a tradition. e.g. like watching Holiday movies and you can watch together on YouTube or Netflix and then have a chat about it after virtually. or the cookie baking contest on face time. Trying to carol in sync on Zoom is crazy but worth a try unless you have an alternative platform?

Not sure where to put this.
I really enjoyed the International Braille Day conference. It was inspiring to sing Louis Braille Happy Birthday in both languages, especially since he was French and why W isn't in the original Braille but with an alternate bottom dot.

I have an old PAC Mate but not sure if the Braille display would ever work again since it was just connected to that device decades old.
For resources I guess braille resources?

Have a great day!

Thanks Rachel.
CMHA has resources and these are on the Winnipeg/Manitoba page but national resources.
I omitted the ones that no longer exist.

• Postpartum Depression Association of Manitoba PPDAM is a volunteer organization, made up of both professionals and mothers with lived experience, who are committed to helping Manitoba families get connected with the help they need now.

• Canadian Mental Health Association – Downloadable pamphlets on all topics relating to mental health and mental illness.

• Mood Disorders Society of Canada – A website by and for people and families affected by mood disorders.

• Mind Your Mind – Developed for and by young people.

• Here to Help – A great resource for families providing care to people with mental illness.

• Get Help Early – Excellent resource for early intervention of psychosis including practical advice for families.

• Mental Health Roundtable – Focuses on mental health in workplaces.
it is an old source
• Mental Health Works – a nationally available program of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) that builds capacity within Canadian workplaces to effectively address the many issues related to mental health in the workplace.

• For additional information and resources, visit the CMHA National website

I checked some of the resources mentioned here and found some really great ones, but also there were some that were no longer available.
HBR articles require a paid subscription.

We couldn't find this page | OptionB.Org

I also downloaded the App Mindshift. Signing up seems to be difficult as some of the registration form edit boxes are not identified. It sounds like an amazing app if one could get into it.

I Use the Calm app. It works on both IOS and Android. This app is mostly accessible with very minor issues of unlabeled buttons.

This was sent to Rachel already.

Quarantine Support:
Angels Facebook group that helps seniors with tasks like groceries, shoveling snow, get food, talk to seniors. It started in Thompson and it is across communities in Manitoba where people assist Elders. It is here in Winnipeg too. But it is on Facebook.
CBC article: ... -1.5877018

Also I've been in quarantine in the fall and learned resources. Not sure if you guys have resource places like 211 in your cities or places like Resource Centres. Some city sites have them but there are also accessibility agencies like we have here that have listings and also like on our government page.

Feel free to email me if you want to discuss. Take care.

Hi, i am having difficulties with insomnia. It is getting ridiculous now (It's 1 am). Does anyone have remedies? Like does lots of chamomile tea work? I rarely drink coffee as I have adverse reactions to caffeine. Like are there certain meditations to listen to before bed you find useful, herbs, foods to eat or to avoid other than caffeine? Thanks.
