Mental Illnesses in the Workplace

Responsible employers provide a physically safe environment for employees—but what about their psychological safety? Every workplace has psychological risks that impact the productivity, turnover and economic costs.

Workplaces can be stressful and contribute to mental health problems and illnesses. Adults in Alberta spend more of their waking hours at work than anywhere else, which is why organizations addressing mental health at work is so important (Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), 2021).

Supporting employee mental health can improve productivity, cut down on absences and increase employee retention. It can be a complex task, but the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is here to help. Whether you work in healthcare, hospitality, construction, trades, public service, finance, law, education, non-profit, union work, community organizing, consulting, or anywhere in between, CMHA, Alberta Division has a suite of workplace mental health training opportunities to assist your organization with becoming a psychologically healthy and more productive place to work.

CMHA, Alberta Division’s Working Stronger training offers a comprehensive range of workplace mental health training opportunities designed to address the diverse mental health needs of your organization.
