Mental Health & Wellness for the Workplace

Duration: 1 day (Lunch Provided)

One in three Canadians will experience a mental health injury at some point during their life. The earlier an injury is detected and treated, the better the outcome.

This one-day course helps participants better recognize the symptoms of possible mental health injuries and how/where to get help.

• How to identify mental injuries within oneself and one’s coworkers
