Workplace Mental illness touches one out of every five Canadians. Someone in your life right now — a neighbour, a colleague, a family member — has been affected by mental illness. Unfortunately, many of us don’t know what to do about it.
Workplace Mentally healthy employees are the key to a productive workplace and Canada is starting to take note. The social justice and economic arguments are strong and more organizations are adopting programs to promote psychological health and combat absenteeism and presenteeism.
Children and Youth Approximately 14 to 25 percent of Canadian children and youth experience mental health issues, and it is a misconception that these illnesses can only be treated, not prevented. If we want to ensure Canada’s future prosperity, we need to change the way we think about mental health and it starts with our children.
Education and Advocacy Investments are being made in resources and research to help us better understand how the system responds to mental health issues so that we are better equipped to improve the lives of Canadians.
