Let us help you create a mentally healthier workplace
Twenty percent of Canadians will experience a diagnosed mental illness in their lifetime but more than 40% will experience challenges with their mental health during their working years. Of those 40%, 2 out of 3 people suffer in silence fearing judgment rather than seeking treatment.
Work with us to ensure your employees and members get the support they need. A psychologically healthy and safe workplace is within your reach.
