According to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, people with a mental illness are twice as likely to have a substance use disorder and people with a substance use disorder are up to three times more likely to have a mental illness. If this resonates with you and you’re looking to learn how to manage these issues or advocate for support, join Canada Life and Workplace Strategies for Mental Health (WSMH) for a new public webinar.
