Mental Health Strategies in the Workplace – Starter Presentation

The goal is safe and sustainable return to work or stay at work for individuals who have experienced mental illness. In this introductory one hour workshop participants will learn the basics of who are the stakeholders in the return to work process, how to move from subjective to objective findings, why whole person approach and focus on function/work ability. Participants will learn basics on key features of depression, how to have that important conversation with the employee to obtain support and assistance, and practical strategies for management.
