Recent studies show that more Canadian workers are reporting increased anxiety and depression compared to before the pandemic, and that access to mental health services isn’t keeping up with the need. This means that employers should be aware that a significant portion of their workforce may be in need.

Based on the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace, this webinar provides HR professionals with guidance on ensuring appropriate psychological support for workers as we work through and beyond the pandemic, to minimize the risk of mental harm and support their ability to succeed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Support HR professionals in building successful workplace mental health support strategies into the organization’s health, wellness and safe workplace programs.
  • Provide HR professionals with key information to improve their ability to secure necessary resources to support worker mental  health.
  • Improve HR professionals’ ability to address the unique needs of their diverse populations to support their mental health and workplace success.
