Disponible en français

Everyone occasionally feels anxious, blue or sad, but these feelings usually pass within a couple of days. When a person has anxiety or depressive disorder, it significantly interferes with daily life, makes normal functioning impossible, and causes pain for both the person and those who care about them.

Although it is difficult to quantify the impact of work itself on personal identity, self-esteem and social recognition, most mental health professionals agree that the workplace environment can have a significant impact on an individual's well-being.

This course will explore the signs, symptoms, and solutions for mental illnesses commonly experienced in the workplace.

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to

  • Recognize the signs of common mental illnesses at work.
  • Review practical situations and case studies including depression, phobias, anxiety disorders, and abuse/dependence issues.
  • Use communication skills and strategies in a workplace setting.
  • Understand the importance of getting help and support including accommodation and best practices for return-to-work strategies.
Average time to complete this course is approximately one hour.
