Mental Health in the Workplace: Meeting Legal Obligations, Providing Effective Support

In a 12-month period, one in five Canadian adults will develop a serious mental health problem, and mental health problems are rated one of the top three drivers of both short- and long-term disability claims by more than 80 percent Canadian employers.

The Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources at the University of Toronto and the Centre for Labour Relations Training and Development at Lancaster House have designed this program to provide labour relations professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to promote mental well-being in the workplace, compassionately and responsibly support employees who are mentally unwell, and fulfill their legal obligation to accommodate employees experiencing mental health problems.
