What do you think when we say “health and safety in the workplace”? Do you think hardhats? Do you think PPE? Or do you think about mental health?

It’s time to think “psychological” when you think of health and safety. Because your employees – and your bottom line – need you to. After two years of pandemic life, employees are struggling with their mental health, and you want to do what’s right. For them, and for your business.

You need expert advice, and you need a plan.  

Our Education team will work with you, however big or small your business. No matter what you do. We provide evidence-based training that is interactive and focused on solutions. We develop unique and catered learning experiences to create a workplace that’s safe and healthy. Psychologically speaking.

Ask how the Canadian Mental Health Association Nova Scotia Division’s education team can customize services to meet your training needs. We are happy to build out customized training sessions but here are some common topics in workplace mental health, including:

Do right by your employees, while increasing productivity and worker retention and reducing absences and working while sick (presenteeism). Your work culture depends on it and so does your business. And we’re here to help.

Contact our team today and get started on making your organization a psychologically healthier, more productive workplace.
