Mental illness is considered the number one cause of workplace disability in Canada. Yet, stigma around the topic is a key reason why many Ontarians don’t talk about mental illness in their workplaces. This half-day workshop is your chance to become more informed and talk more openly about mental health in the workplace.
Participants will learn how to promote a greater understanding of occupational mental health and illness. The discussion includes a demonstration of Mindsight, an online educational resource to reduce stigma by promoting awareness of mental illness, and facilitating a greater understanding of basic strategies and resources for supporting individuals experiencing a mental health challenge..
Who should attend: WSIB Representatives, RTW Specialists, Health & Safety reps, Human Resources, Workplace Leadership and Union Stewards
