Improving workplace mental health.
Mental Health in the workplace affects us all, whether we are employers or employees.
When mental health issues are not addressed and treated appropriately, there can be considerable personal and financial costs to individuals and organizations. Fortunately, with prevention, early treatment and support, many of these costs can be significantly reduced or eliminated.
Our Wellness Works education suite provides the workshops, courses and presentations your workplace needs to help your team learn more about mental health. Your staff will learn to improve their own wellness, manage stress and support others living with mental health concerns.
And here’s the good news – every $1 businesses invest in mental health returns $2.30 in improved productivity – a mentally healthy workplace is worth investing in.
We have several workshops and programs to choose from and we can provide customized sessions based on your unique needs and timeframe.
