Protecting the Psychological Health and Safety of Volunteers

Description: Volunteers come from all walks of life. This means a percentage of them will have lived experience with addiction, trauma or mental illness. Others will be struggling with personal, financial or health issues. Join MHCC and Mindful Employer Canada to explore strategies that can be used to improve the psychological health and safety of your organizations volunteers.

Protecting the Psychological Health and Safety of Volunteers was developed through the contributions and feedback of 27 not-for-profit organizations participating in Mindful Employer Canada’s “Building capacity to promote and protect Psychological Health and Safety in the not-for-profit sector” case study. This two-year case study was made possible by the Ministry of Labour’s Occupational Health and Safety Prevention and Innovation Program.

Join us to learn more about the strategies and resource sin the toolkit to support volunteers within your organization.
