October is Healthy Workplace Month in Canada. Sea to Sky Mental Health Partnership is hosting a workshop in Squamish, that Pemberton/Whistler residents can join via webinar, on October 20:
Healthy Workplaces in Sea to Sky: Improving Bottom Line Results and Employee Psychological Well-Being.
Date: Thursday, October 20, 11:45a.m.-1:15p.m. (Bring your lunch)
Environmental stressors, financial barriers, substance use, living arrangements, traumatic experiences, and social isolation, can magnify an underlying illness that may not have been diagnosed. Workplaces that are proactive can provide a vital link to professional help.
