Pandemic review: How has your relationship with alcohol changed?

Featured Image

For nearly two years now, we've been faced with pandemic turbulence. With new variants on the horizon, we're not sure what comes next and this uncertainty can lead to continued feelings of anxiety and stress. It's a great time to look at our coping mechanisms and think about how alcohol use played a role throughout. 

The holidays are around the corner too and if you're gathering, plenty of toasts may be shared. If now is a time when you're thinking about your relationship with alcohol and how to manage as we move towards a new year, listen to Shay's story. You might be finding that your alcohol use has increased and if that's the case, you're not the only one.  

Looking for a bit of help as you manage your relationship with alcohol? MindBeacon is here with a variety of supports available in our Virtual Mental Health Therapy Clinic. If you are part of our Workplace Mental Health Program, please visit your company page for access to services covered by your program.

Brought to you by real people with real stories, our Shared Experiences series shines light on the mental health struggles we all commonly face. One in five people experience a mental illness in a given year and by the time someone reaches 40, the prevalence is one in two and many don't reach out for help. At MindBeacon, we strive to change that. Care to share your story and help others remember they're not alone? Reach out to community@mindbeacon.com to play your part in removing the stigma.
