About the trainer

For leaders and managers, dealing with issues related to mental health in the workplace can be challenging and difficult to navigate. It is essential that leadership has the capabilities to manage mental health because early identification and support can lead to continued productivity, retention of employees and overall satisfaction in the workplace. This workshop provides a roadmap to help leaders participate in conversations with employees who may require support and accommodation when experiencing difficulties related to mental health. Participants will discuss practical strategies for creating a more inclusive work environment and develop a plan to reduce stigma surrounding mental illness. The workshop also explores how to create appropriate processes to address the needs of both employees and employers.
