Between government programs, benefits plans and EAPs, many employers think they have things covered – yet there still is a massive gap between what’s being provided, and what’s being used.

And even if employees manage to navigate and find support, how do you know what’s actually working and making a difference?

Listen to executives from some of the leading organizations in Canada as they share their experiences creating their own Workplace Mental Health program. They’ll share their challenges and triumphs and help you to skip over their mistakes and smoothly implement their best practices.
