Workplace Wellness Matters:
According to the Mental Health Commission, on any given week, *more than 500,000 Canadians are unable to go to work due to mental health problems. Mental illness is the second leading cause of disability and premature death in Canada. We therefore encourage working environments that support the overall mental well-being of their employees.
Healthy, happy, and productive employees are the essence of an effective organization. Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) keep organizations, individuals and families functioning at their best.
