SUDBURY, ONT. — Workplace Safety North (WSN) is hosting free in-person mental health training sessions throughout northern Ontario in October in celebration of Healthy Workplace Month.
WSN health and safety specialists Adrienne Allam, Lindsay Digby and Melanie Jorgensen, who are also certified psychological health and safety advisers with the Canadian Mental Health Association, will host sessions in Thunder Bay, Sudbury and Timmins.
Participants can attend a half-day session on mental health awareness. Those who have attended Mental Health 101 and are in a supervisory role can also register for the full-day session Workplace Mental Health: A Framework for Leaders, a release indicates.
“Mental Health 101 training explores how your role in the workplace has the power to affect the well-being of those around you,” said Allam in a statement. “In the session, you’ll learn about the mental health continuum, stress response, personal action plans, and identify steps we can all take to help stamp out the stigma around us.”
Participants are encouraged to register for the half-day of training and those in supervisory roles may want to also register the full-day session for leaders. Mental Health 101 is a pre-requisite for the leadership course. Sessions are limited to 20 participants.
