Solutions for Responding to Mental Health at Work

Talking about mental health at work can be challenging. But becoming more aware of signs of mental illnesses, and learning how to have those difficult discussions are part of being an effective leader. This workshop is suitable for leaders and supervisors, and builds skills to respond immediately and appropriately to employees who are showing signs of being unwell. It helps leaders navigate between performance or productivity issues and underlying mental health issues, and gives them the tools to fulfill their duty to inquire. This workshop is highly interactive, with activities and discussion throughout. It includes experiences of people who work and live with mental illness, either live or through video. Leaders leave the workshop with the awareness to recognize signs of mental illness and the skills to supportively address them. The workshop fee is $1500 for a half day and $2750 for a full day. This workshop is available for delivery across BC by the following certified trainers: Julia Kaisla, Gord Menelaws, Margaret Tebbutt, Lucette Wesley and Mary Lu Spagrud.
