Psychological distress during the pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is a recent and ongoing world-wide sanitary crisis, however we already have access to data on its mental health impacts on people in Quebec, in the rest of Canada (Angus Reid Institute, 2020Blouin-Genest, et al., 2020), and elsewhere in the world (Nelson et al,. 2020Rajkumar, 2020). These impacts can also be felt by health and social service workers in Quebec (INESSS, 2020). These studies focus mainly on the development of mental health problems related to COVID-19 (e.g., psychological distress, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress). However, very few studies are currently interested in the levels of positive mental health (i.e., wellbeing) in Quebec during this pandemic.
