We have heard from members for over a year (and have compiled numerous resources) on the impact of COVID-19 and social distancing in regards to older adult mental health. This is an opportunity to ensure mental health is not left out of either human rights or ageism conversations.
Both calls are open until 22 March 2021 and contributions are welcome in English, Spanish or French.
