I think we all can agree the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our mental health, in daily life and at work in the heavy construction industry. Bell Let’s Talk Day is an effort to get us all thinking about mental health, in an effort to end the stigma and start a different kind of conversation.
January 26 is Let’s Talk Day, a mental-health awareness campaign sponsored by Bell Canada.
Here are 5 simple ways to end the stigma:
- Language matters; take a minute to think before you speak
- Educate yourself
- Be kind
- Listen and ask
- Talk about it
WORKSAFELY® is partnering with the Canadian Mental Health Association to improve awareness, and to provide resources and assistance that support the mental health of those who work in the heavy construction industry. We look forward to assisting all of our companies in the near future.
WORKSAFELY® offers online workplace mental health training for managers and worker, links to which can be found here.
So, let’s talk!
