The Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has added three online courses to its mental health resources to help organizations create a psychologically healthy workplace.
Psychological Health and Safety for Employers explains how to assess psychological health and safety in the workplace and how to create an environment where workers feel supported. This course also provides information on how to apply appropriate control measures to address psychosocial factors and improve mental health and safety in the workplace.
Worker Psychological Health and Safety provides tools to recognize how work environments affect mental health and identify factors that influence mental health. The course also covers the roles employers and workers play in promoting psychological health and safety in the workplace. This course is available for free until March 31, 2022.
The free course Reducing Mental Health Stigma in the Workplace explains how stigma gets established, how to avoid perpetuating it, and how to support colleagues by actively listening and offering resources.
These courses are available in English and French and are recommended for anyone interested in learning more about mental health in the workplace.
All three courses are available on the CCOHS website.
