As we’re entering year 3 of the pandemic, our workplaces, and how we work, have profoundly changed. These have been challenging times, in particular for our mental health. How we respond, as organizations and on a personal level, will have a big impact on how we come out of the pandemic. On June 1, join Katharine Coons, national workplace mental health specialist at the Canadian Mental Health Association’s national office, for her five good ideas on how to create a psychologically healthy and safe workplace. Katharine will talk about ways to implement the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the workplace, reduce stigma, implement policies, procedures and programs and how to approach workplace mental health training.
