Workplace Training & COVID-19
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Alberta Division is committed to supporting Alberta workers and employers as they strive for better mental health and implement the Psychological Health and Safety Standard (the Standard).
In today’s reality, in-person training opportunities are difficult to facilitate. As we comply with Alberta Health Services COVID-19 recommendations—like physical distancing, mask wearing and group sizes—CMHA, Alberta Division is limited in its ability and resources to host in-person trainings. As a result, trainings such as Certified Psychological Health & Safety Advisor Training, Compassion Fatigue Training and Mental Health in the Workplace, will not be held until CMHA has deemed it safe, accessible and affordable for participants. Similar approaches to in-person trainings and events are being adopted by organizations like the Red Cross and the Mental Health Commission of Canada. We continue to monitor COVID-19 public health recommendations closely and will resume in-person training when it is safe to do so.
We are pleased to offer a variety of online workplace mental health resources and training facilitated through virtual platforms. Please refer to the CMHA Alberta Division website to review these opportunities. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Contact our workplace training department about our customizable virtual training options.
If you’re interested in participating in in-person training when it resumes, please complete our Expression of Interest form. We will reach out to you as soon as in-person training opportunities are available.
