COVID-19 Resources

In light of Coronavirus (Covid-19), OAMHP has made a number of links to information and resources available.

Here you will find information regarding online clinical practice, government updates, resources from the colleges and more. We continue to update this page and welcome any additional resources you feel would be of value to professionals in the mental health field.

Please know that OAMHP wishes to do all they can to help mental health professionals understand and anticipate the impacts of Covid-19. We also recognize we are not the experts and see our role as assisting you to find the best sources to provide answers to your questions. Please ensure you are staying up to date with the latest information.
