Workplace Mental Health (Two-Day) Workshop

Applications for this workshop are closed. Please check back later.

This workshop will be held November 13-14, 2019 at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown. 

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
•    Stewards’ self-care and recognizing compassion fatigue
•    Workplace mental health resources

Application Deadline October 3
