Established by the Mental Health Commission of Canada, the Working Mind is an evidenced-based training program designed to address and promote mental health and reduce stigma in a workplace setting. The training includes scenario-based practical applications, custom videos of people with lived experience of mental illness, participant reference guides, and related handouts.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the basic concepts, risk factors and causes of mental illness and mental disorders
  • Gain the confidence, tools and resources to manage and support employees who may be experiencing mental health problems or illness
  • Learn about the Mental Health Continuum Model, how to observe changes along the continuum, and how to take appropriate action
  • Develop resilience and health-coping strategies
  • Build their mental health literacy to help recognize, manage and support colleagues with mental health challenges in the workplace

The program is available in two versions: one for managers and for employees.
