Guest Speaker, Sue Mercer, Mental Health Commission of Canada will present an overview of “The Working Mind” program which provides tools and techniques proven to help employees, supervisors, and senior management identify indicators of declining and poor mental health in their workplace as well as learn strategies to maintain good mental health.
Included in this session will be information about “The Working Mind’s Train the Trainer” Certification Program which our Association is interested in pursuing for our industry. Companies who attend may be interested in having employees complete the certification program so they have resources available “in house”.
We encourage you or individuals in your organization who would be interested in learning more about the program to attend this information session.
