Psychology Month celebrates the contributions of Canadian psychologists and tells Canadians how psychology helps people live healthy and happy lives, communities thrive, employers create better workplaces, and governments develop effective policies.
More than ever, psychologists have been solicited for their know-how during the pandemic. Psychologists are present in several spheres of society. Canadians have had to constantly adapt to the many changes in life at the personal, family and professional levels. However, accessibility issues remain at the heart of many debates in the public sector.
Psychology is Changing Things
In February, the Canadian Psychological Association is shedding light on the multiple ways psychology affects our lives using the hashtags #MoisDeLaPsychologie and #LaPsychologieChangeLesChoses.
