Live Virtual Training: Psychologically Safe Workplace for Supervisors & Managers
Why is it important for your supervisors/managers to take this course?
As you may know, the workplace is now recognized as an important influence on mental health. Between 10% and 25% of workplaces are characterized by conditions and environments considered mentally injurious. Occupational health physician specialists report that 50–60% of their caseloads are related directly or indirectly to mental health concerns. The objective of this course is to provide supervisors/managers with the information they need to create and promote a healthy culture within your organization where both employees and the organization can thrive.
