Free Monthly Webinars on Workplace Mental Health Promotion



Do you want to integrate psychological health and safety (PH&S) in the workplace? The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) is hosting workplace webinars on the last Wednesday of every month at noon E.T. Sign up today for this series of free webinars designed specifically to discuss PH&S in the workplace.



Training to Promote Psychological Health and Safety
Wednesday, October 26, 2016
12 -1 p.m. ET


Training is a key component of the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace and can be used to build staff and management’s awareness and confidence.

This webinar will feature two training programs available through the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC): Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) and The Working Mind (TWM). MHFA is a course that allows participants to gain the confidence and the skills to respond effectively to emerging mental health problems and crises. MHFA has been proven to reduce stigma, and increase confidence and willingness to help others. TWM focuses on stigma reduction, increasing resiliency skills and acquiring skills to manage stress. This course helps staff recognize signs of declining and poor mental health in themselves and in others.

You will also hear from a champion in this field, Nova Scotia’s Public Service Commission, and learn about their strategy to train staff members in both programs.

Guest Speakers:

Carolyn Campbell
Senior Consultant- Psychological Health and Safety
Nova Scotia Public Service Commission

Amy Fogarty
Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health Commission of Canada

Sue Mercer
Opening Minds
Mental Health Commission of Canada



Webinar Recommendations


“ I have worked in training and education through online learning environments for the past 15 years. Given my background, I would like to offer comments regarding your recent webinar on implementing PH&S in the workplace. I found your presentation format extremely interactive and interesting. You were very effective in incorporating many of the elements required to truly engage learners in an online format. Your guest speakers were extremely prepared and brought forth insightful and relevant information on how to bring forward these initiatives. Having guest speakers from industry relating their experiences on implementing PHS was useful in better understanding the implementation process and the benefits. These are extremely professional and I hope, very well-received presentations. I know I personally gained a great deal of information and insight from attending!”
