Workplace Mental Health workshop: Vancouver Island
Workplace hazards such as unsafe work, workload, violence, bullying, harassment, workplace conflict and poor management style can have a significant impact on workers’ mental health and well-being.
As a result, local stewards and activists are increasingly dealing with mental health issues faced by members in their workplaces. To support stewards in addressing these concerns, we are excited to offer a two-day Workplace Mental Health workshop for local stewards and activists.
We will discuss and explore topics including: recognizing workplace mental health issues, employers’ responsibilities to create mentally healthy workplaces, understanding the stigma around mental health issues, practicing compassionate conversations about mental health, workplace mental health resources, stewards' self-care and recognizing compassion fatigue, and workplace mental health resources.
