Brock University is offering its employees free workplace mental health training.
The Working Mind is an education-based training program developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada to promote mental health and reduce the stigma of mental illness in a workplace setting. It aims to help employees recognize signs of mental health changes in themselves and others and encourage a safe environment for open dialogue.
Brock University’s Health Management team regularly offers two sessions, one directed at managers or people leaders and a second focused on employees.
The Working Mind manager session takes place over two days, while the employee session is completed within one day. Both take place via Zoom.
Upcoming manager sessions:
- Tuesday, Jan. 31 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Wednesday, Feb. 1 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. | Register
