How did Canada become the first country in the world to have a national standard for psychological health and safety in the workplace? The free book, The Evolution of Workplace Mental Health in Canada – Toward a standard for psychological health and safety, helps answer this question, outlining how we moved beyond the idea that mental health was exclusively an individual’s responsibility toward recognition that the way work environments are managed matters. The National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace, launched in 2013, was the result of this evolution in thinking. The Standard provides guidelines for employers to protect and promote employee well-being without sacrificing organizational success.
