Be Well, Work Well
Taking care of business, one at a time.
Rural communities and local businesses in Huron and Perth Counties have been uniquely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health has partnered with the Ontario Government and other local partners to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on mental health and substance use in rural Huron and Perth workplaces.
Be Well Work Well is a community-based research project that aims to strengthen Huron-Perth rural communities by ensuring that the voices of local employers and their employees are heard and reflected in the solutions. By joining communities together through roundtable discussions and focus groups, the project will support the resiliency of local rural businesses, employers, and employees into the future.
