Event Description:

Healthy = Wealthy

The cost of mental illnesses to the Canadian economy is estimated at over $50 billion annually, with $20 billion of that stemming directly from workplace losses. On average, mental health issues cost businesses almost $1,500 per employee, per year.  For most employers, it is easier to cope with an employee’s physical injury than a mental one.  There is clearly value in recognizing and managing mental wellbeing but often these problems are misjudged or disregarded.

This session will help you understand why it is important to embrace the distinctive character of mental wellness in the workplace through open conversation and how you can apply this in your business with a review of the many resources available including  the Ontario Chamber of Commerce's Working Toward Mental Health: A toolkit for employers . This document identifies the “mental health action gap” between what businesses believe and how they are taking action on mental health. It outlines the case for mental wellness in the workplace, and identifies strategies that any size of business can employ

Speaker:  Sandie Sidsworth, CMHA-HPE (Canadian Mental Health Association for our region) 
Ashley Challinor, Director of Policy, Ontario Chamber of Commerce
