Free Webinar: New Trends in the Workplace Mental Health and Addictions Summit

You’re invited for EHN Canada’s next educational event: New Trends in the Workplace Mental Health and Addictions Summit

Over the last two and a half years, there has been a notable shift within professional environments across Canada. People have been going back and forth with stay-at-home orders, working from home then back in office and home again. It is hard to find a sense of “normal” again. And it has taken a toll on Canadian workers. According to the Human Resources Professional Association, only 23% of Canadians feel comfortable approaching their employer with mental health concerns. With new barriers becoming a factor in employees’ mental health and addictions, it is essential to know what types of programming and options are available. On Thursday, May 19 between 12-2pm EST, we are excited to host the two-hour New Trends in Workplace Mental Health and Addictions Summit. We will focus on the digital shift healthcare providers have taken and the ways in which employers and employees can engage with these new digital forums. We also have the opportunity to sit down with both EHN Canada and industry leaders to discuss what compassionate leadership means to them and how they have implemented it in their respective working environments.
