Description

Offered through ACHIEVE Centre for Leadership & Workplace Performance

This is a live stream event, please check our system requirements prior to registering.

Mental health concerns will directly impact one in every five people. The remaining four will know a friend, family member, co-worker, or acquaintance that struggles with their mental health. It is essential that organizations build capacity to support those with mental health concerns because early identification and support typically leads to continued employee wellbeing. This workshop will explore factors affecting mental health, give participants a general overview of common adult mental illnesses and, most importantly, how to be a support. Participants will learn strategies for creating a more inclusive work environment that reduces stigma surrounding mental illness.
