Talking about mental health at work can be challenging. But becoming more aware of signs of mental illnesses, and learning how to have those difficult discussions are part of being an effective leader.
Mental Health Works is a national award winning program of the Canadian Mental Health Association that builds capacity within organizations to effectively address the many issues related to mental health in the workplace.
This workshop provides participants with an in depth understanding of mental health and mental illness. The workshop presents a balanced, innovative approach that features awareness building, responding skills, and collaborative change. It is made up of four modules: Mental Health at Work, Mood and Depression, Stress and Anxiety, and Psychological Health and Safety.
The workshop is suitable for leaders, supervisors, managers, union representatives and builds skills to respond immediately and appropriately to employees who are showing signs of being unwell. It helps leaders navigate between performance or productivity issues and underlying mental health issues, and gives them the tools to fulfill their duty to inquire. Leaders leave the workshop with the awareness to recognize signs of mental illness and the skills to supportively address them.
