Mental Health in the Workplace: Return-to- work tools for employers

Join our panel of experts at the hybrid ‘State of the Island’ Economic Summit, taking place October 27th & 28th at the Vancouver Island Convention Centre and online.

Clearly, mental health issues have emerged and will continue to unfold as a set of complex post-pandemic concerns. As companies turn their attention to return-to-work decisions, it can be forseen that tensions may arise between those “at work” and those “working remotely”.

We will explore 3 key areas: recognition, prevention, and support. The aim of this presentation is to provide you with practical and actionable tools and strategies to address mental health concerns in your workplace.

Objectives of this session include identifying mental health issues in the workplace, providing examples of practical and tactical leadership approaches for proactive management; and guiding your understanding of related legal implications.

You will leave this session with:

  • an understanding of the mental health continuum
  • key considerations to manage your return-to-work process
  • awareness of key mental health “watch outs” related to risk factors and protective factors so that you can create a sustainable workplace
