Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) will implement a program called The Working Mind beginning this fall to embed mental health support into our organization. This evidence-based program developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada reduces the stigma of mental illness and helps increase resiliency among employees and leaders.
This program will be delivered by HHS trainers recruited from various departments and levels of the organization. We believe the program will help to support mental health and wellbeing, enable full productivity of employees, and help to change our culture to one of greater support and compassion.
An estimated 1 in 2 people in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area’s labour force have experienced a mental health issue. Ignite mental health support in your workplace by taking the MindsMatter Assessment today.
