Dal Let's Talk Workplace Mental Health

Part of Dal's Thrive mental wellness initiative. Visit dal.ca/thrive.

It’s a fact, one in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lifetime. One of the biggest hurdles for anyone suffering from mental illness is overcoming the stigma. It is the number one reason why two-thirds of those living with a mental illness do not seek help.

Come join this discussion, led by Janice MacInnis from Human Resources, about your workplace experiences at Dalhousie.  Are we making progress in reducing the stigma of mental illness? What hurdles still exist? Stefane Grenier, mental illness advocate, says we need to stop talking about mental illness and start doing more about it. What more can we be doing?

Feel free to bring your lunch.
