The Working Mind for Employees offers practical knowledge to increase participants’ overall comfort level with mental illness. Upon completing the course, employees will be able to:

  • recognize its signs and indicators, in themselves and others

The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) has customized The Working Mind to best align with the lived experience of staff in a care giving role. MHCC has collaborated with individuals to ensure it captures the current and past experiences of staff. This customization also includes scenario-based lessons, videos that feature people with lived experience of mental illness, reference guides, and practical handouts.
