Synopsis

According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, mental health issues are experienced by one in five Canadians and research has documented the expression, and consequences, of this phenomenon at the workplace. The combination of policy, jurisprudence and economic factors has resulted in more and more employers expressing interest in workplace mental health programs. This interest culminated in the publication of a new standard for Psychological Health and Safety at work (CSA Z1003) in cooperation with the Mental Health Commission. In this presentation, I will discuss the standard and outline the three pillars comprising an effective workplace mental health program: prevention, intervention, and accommodation.
