The Manager's Role in Mental Health

According to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, "in any given year, one in five Canadians will experience a mental health problem or illness."

Managers are increasingly expected to understand and play a role.

"Managers may be asked to be alert to symptoms, initiate the dreaded conversation, guide the employee to assistance programs, keep in touch during a leave-of-absence, and facilitate the employee's return to work," as noted in the article Mental health - a manager's toughest talk in The Globe and Mail.

Prepare yourself to handle this important issue by attending:
