Mental Health Training for Staff

Led by Mental Health Commission of Canada Staff

On February 27th BOMA Nova Scotia will be hosting a half-day ‘The Working Mind’ workshop exclusively for our members, with facilitators from the Mental Health Commission of Canada.

The Working Mind (TWM) is an education-based program (self-focused) designed to address and promote mental health and reduce the stigma of mental illness in the workplace. Participants learn how to recognize changes in behaviour that could indicate mental health issue – either in themselves, or others. Participants also learn coping strategies to build resiliency by using CBT-based techniques.

We are offering their four-hour workshop, which includes the following:

  • A focus on dispelling the myths of mental health problems and mental illnesses, aiming to reduce associated stigma
  • An overview of the Mental Health Continuum Model
  • Self-assessment of one’s own mental health along the continuum
  • Strategies one can apply at each point along the continuum

Numbers for this workshop are strictly limited. Please register early to guarantee a place.
