Subject: Health resources in BC

Dear all,

Today I forgot to mention some health-related resources, especially since many university resources can be used only in person. Some links are general and others specific to the pandemic.

General support from BC:

  *   8-1-1 hotline<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.healthlinkbc.ca%2Fabout-8-1-1&data=02%7C01%7C%7C8b371013df714c9986f108d7e0cbc336%7Cc20535109cb34679a2d38f442e03b587%7C1%7C0%7C637225038092613036&sdata=CdQX%2BAq1EoKrjzw9OJVvARevi9euztoVaXZ%2BkwFIcMQ%3D&reserved=0>: A free health information and advice phone line. E.g. connect to a nurse to determine if you need to call an ambulance or put an ice pack on it.

  *   Mental health for students: crisis hotlines, services and resources directory, chat lines, buddy apps

I'll repeat, if you need anything, please check in with me: You're sick or lonely; your pantry is bare; or, toilet paper hasn't returned to your part of town. I'll work with you to get what you need.

Take care and thanks for a great meeting,
Ania
