Subscribe now to the Working Through It™ weekly email service, which will deliver information related to mental health to your inbox each week.
Increasing Mental Health Awareness in 5 Minutes a Week
The Working Through It weekly emails will include links to a short video clip or a resource document that you can share with employees to inform and inspire them about taking charge of their mental health issues at work, off work and when returning to work.
The purpose of this service is to open dialogue, increase understanding and remove some of the stigma that surrounds mental health issues. Viewing the videos and resources will take, on average, less than five minutes of an employee's time each week. They are not intended to be sent to specific individuals, but rather to your entire team including, if possible and appropriate, any team members who are away from work on leave.
Begin a Workplace Dialogue
To help make this even more effective, consider what's being discussed in each week's email and use it as an opportunity to open dialogue within your team.
The timing to get started using this resource is ideal. The National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace raises the urgency, as well as the responsibility, for employers and organizations to increase awareness about mental health and mental illness in the workplace.

Every situation is different and individual circumstances should be considered before making decisions about employment and treatment options. The information is not intended to offer legal, medical, or other professional advice and should not be relied on as such.
