NEW WEBINAR: Healthy Minds, Healthy Workplaces

Compassionate care is a benefit for employees needing to take a temporary leave to care for a gravely ill family member who has a significant risk of death within six months. While both the federal and provincial governments provide job-protected compassionate care leave for workers, many organizations are going a step further by implementing top-up compassionate care leave policies in order to provide comfort to employees while boosting engagement and retention at work.

Join us for an informative Webinar on Mental Health in the Workplace delivered by Ann Vickery, Mental Health Educator with the Canadian Mental Health Association – York and South Simcoe. The webinar will highlight workshops from CMHA Workplace Wellness Series designed to build capacity within organizations to effectively address the many issues related to mental health in the workplace.
A psychologically healthy work environment supports employee engagement, worker health and well-being, recruitment and retention, productivity, effective risk management and corporate social responsibility. Everyone in the workplace, at all levels, positions and roles, can benefit from raised awareness and deepened understanding of the issues to build capacity for creating a psychologically healthy and safe workplace.
Workshops to be reviewed include:

  • The Financial Impact of Mental Illness in the Workplace
  • Psychological Health & Safety Standard
  • Identifying Workplace Mental Health Problems
  • Stress in the Workplace
  • Bullying in the Workplace
  • The Accommodation Process

The series can be broken into modules and delivered to suit employer needs and time frames.
