MindsMatter Webinar: Move for Mental Health

CivicAction and ParticipACTION bring you a free MindsMatter webinar on…

The intersection of physical and mental health in the workplace!

Regular physical activity is essential for good mental health yet very few Canadians get enough. With only 36% of children and 18% of adults meeting Canada’s recommended physical activity guidelines, many people are missing out on the mental health benefits of physical activity. In this free webinar you’ll see experts talk about how physical activity is a part of the mental health conversation.

During the webinar, we share practical ways that you can implement a more physically active workday and feature a national fitness company’s approach to physical and mental well-being.

Guest speakers include:

  • Dr. Leigh Vanderloo. With a PhD in Health Promotion and as the Knowledge Translation Manager for ParticipACTION she will be speaking on unique factors about the impact and importance of physical activity to your mental health.

  • Pam Huerto is the Health Promotions Manager at Athabasca Health Authority. During this webinar she shares the steps AHA is taking to motivate, track and reward its staff for physical activity, leading to better culture, mental and physical health.
