Mental health is recognized as an integral part of a healthy workplace. Supportive workplaces promote the total health and well-being of their employees and offer protection from psychological harm. This 1.5 day workshop will equip your champion/leader with the framework, tools and resources they need to create and implement a comprehensive healthy workplace program.

This workshop will help you:

  • establish an action plan for a mentally healthy workplace and develop a program with sound procedures
  • address all types of hazards including physical and psychosocial so you can build a comprehensive program for effective results.
