Workplace Mental Health
In recognition of Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 6–12)*, the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) urges Canadian employers, employees, unions, and policy makers to consider what they can do to improve mental health in workplaces for all people in Canada. For some people living with mental health problems and illnesses, even becoming part of the workforce has been very challenging; they are part of Canada’s Aspiring Workforce (AW).
MHCC will be launching its Aspiring Workforce Report in Ottawa on October 9, 2013. If you find yourself in Ottawa on Wednesday, join us for lunch to launch the AW Report. Simply RSVP and join us at 11:30 a.m. (E.S.T.) at Mac Hall, The Bronson Centre, 211 Bronson Avenue. Read a related article released October 6 on the Aspiring Workforce on the CTV website.
*Mental Illness Awareness Week is organized every year by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health. See their website for this year’s courageous faces, who are sharing their stories of recovery and helping to eradicate stigma toward mental illnesses.
