  • Promoting a Mentally Healthy Workforce

    Date: October 21
    Time: 11:00AM - 12:00PM
    According to the World Health Organization, a healthy workplace can be described as one where workers and managers actively contribute to the working environment by promoting and protecting the health, safety and well-being of all employees. The workplace can be a key location for activities designed to improve well-being among adults. Workplaces that promote mental health and support their people are more likely to reduce absenteeism, increase productivity and benefit from associated economic gains. In this one hour presentation, participants will learn to identify the risk factors that may be present in their work environment and will learn various strategies that they can deploy to embrace and support a mentally healthy workforce.
    Objective:
    • Identify risk factors for increased mental distress (chronic stress, compassion fatigue, disengagement) in the workplace
    • Identify indicators (signs and symptoms) of a mentally distressed workforce
    • Pinpoint strategies you can easily deploy at your organization to improve well-being and support your employees (and yourself!)
