Staying Safe During COVID-19 Social Media Kit

As the social and economic impact of COVID-19 continues, communities are under great strain. One potential consequence is an increase in harms from alcohol and drug use.

People may find themselves drinking or using substances more to cope with anxiety, stress, loneliness and the uncertain environment.

We have compiled this kit to provide you with social media and internet resources that can be shared with your local community members to help them stay safe and stay connected with you. For instance, ‘Tips for safer drinking’ could be a timely piece of information for you to share through your newsletter, by email or via a social media link.

Now is a good opportunity to reach out to your community online and support them through these challenging times. Your work has never been more important.
