David Gregor Mental Health

 
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health last week released the Workplace Mental Health Playbook for Business Leaders, a guide designed to advise companies on how they can support employees facing mental-health challenges – a growing area of focus and concern in the personal & professional lives of thousands of Canadians.

From the CAMH website:

“CAMH’s Workplace Mental Health Playbook for Business Leaders is a first-of-its-kind, user-friendly playbook providing a path to more effective solutions and better outcomes for employees and for businesses. CAMH’s five powerful recommendations are based on the best available evidence, and were shaped by feedback from business leaders as well as CAMH researchers, clinicians and experts.”

The guide offers five recommendations for Canadian employers:

  • Create a long-term mental health strategy for the entire organization
  • Implement mandatory training for people leaders
  • Create tailored mental-health supports
  • Prioritize and improve return-to-work processes
  • Measure and track the performance of the mental health strategy
