On April 3, the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) announced the winners of the 2017 Champions of Mental Health Awards. Congratulations to all 7 Champions, and to the Centre’s supporter Brian Hansell, who was named in the Community (Individual) category.
Following the tragic loss of his son to suicide, Brian was moved to make a difference in their community and created the Paul Hansell Foundation in his memory.
The Champions Gala, on May 3 in Ottawa, recognizes exceptional Canadians who have made outstanding contributions to the field of mental health and to the awareness of mental illness in Canada over the past year.
Thank you to the Canadian Mental Health Association for creating a video celebrating the Centre’s 10th anniversary and our collaboration together!
The Canadian Human Rights Commission released Impaired at work: a guide to accommodating substance dependence. The purpose of the guide is to help Canadian employers understand, first and foremost, that substance dependence is a form of disability protected by the Canadian Human Rights Act. This means that when an employee is dependent on drugs or alcohol, an employer has an obligation to accommodate and support their recovery.
The Mindset Award for Workplace Mental Health Reporting will celebrate incisive or investigative reporting that materially advances responsible public awareness of issues involving workplace mental health.
