The COVID-19 pandemic is seeing many consumers spend extended periods of time in their home which can weigh on their wellness, so Canada retailer Shoppers Drug Mart is now offering free access to a mental health program to offer support.
The Toronto-based pharmacy retailer has partnered with SilverCloud Health to provide users with access to a virtual stores management program for free to help those who might be experiencing turmoil at this time. The program can be accessed via smartphones, tablets or computers to make it as accessible as possible.
President of Shoppers Drug Mart Jeff Leger spoke on the new mental health program initiative saying, "Our purpose is helping Canadians live life well, and these days that means more than ever. With health and financial concerns, isolation, and anxiety rising, this program is designed to treat stress with modern approaches. Hopefully, it brings people peace of mind, and possibly gives them and the healthcare system some relief at a time when both are burdened.”
