Mental Health in the Workplace
The start of the New Year is especially hard for many. It is cold out, new resolutions are already falling, and the bills from the holiday spending are coming in. This webinar is designed to help Executives, HR, and People Leaders support the well-being of employees.
This webinar focuses on how prevalent mental illnesses and stigmatized attitudes are in the Canadian workplace. To reduce stigma in the workplace, we will educate your participants first on recognizing signs and symptoms of depression and anxiety in the workplace, and then how to respond. Research has shown that investing in a mentally healthy workforce is good for employees and employers alike. And now, during COVID-19, more than 80% of employees are reporting they are experiencing mental health problems.
