Product Description

Mental health is recognized as an integral part of a healthy workplace. Supportive workplaces promote the total health and well-being of their employees and offer protection from psychological harm. Changing the culture, especially to a culture of caring that embeds all forms of health in all aspects of the workplace, takes effort and time. This webinar will provide you with an overview of the tools and resources your organization needs to create and implement a comprehensive healthy workplace program.
