A mentally healthy workplace is an environment that actively strives to support employee well-being and prevent psychological harm.

This course will introduce participants to strategies they can bring back to their organization to promote and enhance their mental health at work.
Suitable for any organization, this course will broaden awareness of mental health definitions and the impact of mental health challenges in the workplace.
