National Mental Health Week


National Mental Health Week – May 6 to 10 – is a mental health awareness campaign sponsored by the Canadian Mental Health Association.

You can support your employees by:

  • Starting a conversation about mental health. For example, talk about stress, and how to manage it in your safety talks
  • Being aware of behavioural changes in your coworkers and encouraging them to talk.
  • Assisting workers in detecting mental health issues early. Encourage employees to access free online screening tools and resources.
  • Supporting your employee’s efforts to get help. Allowing workers flexible hours to go to therapy.

For more information on Mental Health Week visit the Canadian Mental Health Association website here. For any resources or questions regarding mental health in your workplace contact your regional safety advisor.

We would like to remind companies again of our pizza lunch give away!

Send us your company photos of your workplace events during Safety and Health Week. We’ll enter you into a draw for a pizza lunch for your safety committee and post your photos in the Heavy News and on social media.
