An online seminar hosted by CPBI Southern Alberta Region


Please join us for an online seminar on October 22, 2020.

While workplace mental health is a more common topic in most boardrooms than a few years ago, many employers are still finding it difficult to manage the landscape and prioritize what really matters for their business. The session will review recent findings on the prevalence of mental health issues and the impact on the workplace from an organizational perspective as well as an individual perspective. Using case studies, Sylvana will provide an overview of the options and resources available to employers to help develop a sustainable mental health strategy. Carmen will wrap up the session with tips and examples of evidence based interventions to help you and your employees with difficult conversations that may arise on a day to day basis.
