Managing Mental Health in the Workplace (Managers Only)

According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, “nearly a quarter of the country’s working population is currently affected by mental health problems or illnesses leading to absenteeism, “presenteeism” (coming to work but being less than fully productive) and turnover.” 

At this full day workshop, managers and leaders will:

• Gain an awareness of mental health issues, signs and symptoms;
• Find out how to approach someone who may be struggling;
• Learn to create success at work, manage emotions and conflict;
• Hear about accommodation and return-to-work strategies;
• Understand prevention – factors in the workplace that increase risk of mental illness;
• Discuss support strategies for fellow managers / leaders.

Using videos, role play, case studies, and discussion, participants will learn ways to:

• Reduce disability days or "stress leave" by being aware of signs and symptoms and taking action early;
• Prevent Human Rights violations by separating mental health issues from performance issues;
• Prevent stress and illness on the part of the manager by giving them tools to deal with those direct reports who are struggling;
• Support colleagues and access services available to them as managers and leaders in the workplace
