In 2014, the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) launched a three-year national Case Study Research Project (CSRP) to better understand how workplaces of all sizes and sectors across Canada are implementing the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (the Standard).
The Case Study Research Project Final Report is a summary of promising practices and lessons learned from 40 participating organizations. It synthesizes their experiences and discoveries to support other Canadian employers embarking on their own journey in promoting employee psychological health and prevention psychological harm.
Led by the Centre of Applied Research in Mental health and Addiction, the project’s research team was selected via an independent review process and holds expertise in applied research in mental health and addiction, workplace mental health evaluation, occupational health and safety, business processes, evaluation methodologies, and other relevant experience.
The project was coordinated by the MHCC with funding support from Lundbeck Canada Inc., the Great-West Life Centre for Mental Health in the Workplace, and the Government of Canada’s Social Development Partnership Program — Disability Component.
For a list of the key governance players, see pages 52-53 in the Case Study Research Project Final Report.
