Mental Health – Awareness is Key

The Workplace Mental Health Awareness Workshop is aimed at all employees to help them identify signs and symptoms not only in themselves, but also in their colleagues in the workplace.  This workshop will build an awareness and understanding of mental health and provide take-away-tools that employees can use.

Mental Health is an essential part of our overall health, as important as our physical health.  It is important because it affects how we feel, think and behave, even though it may not be clear to others or readily understood. – Rachel Oliver
