The Working Mind is a program offered through the Mental Health Commission of Canada, and works towards stigma reduction and mental health awareness in the workplace. The Working Mind (TWM) program seeks to change Canadians’ behaviours and attitudes toward people living with mental illness, helping to ensure people are treated fairly and as full citizens with opportunities to contribute to society like anyone else. Program participants have shown an increase in resiliency skills and mental health wellbeing, and a decrease in stigmatizing attitudes. This is a great program to look at for increasing your own Mental Health understanding, and also a good resource to share with your coworkers and employers.
