In this hour, we will look at some of the mental health costs of taking care of people.  These are things like vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, burnout, and others.  We will explore the signs that someone is struggling and how to build resiliency and take care of ourselves as we take care of others.




Join Us Virtually on April 27th, 2022!

Our Mental Health Best Practice journey started with a group of passionate individuals looking to work together to implement best practices, increase awareness and bring positive changes to mental health, safety, and claims management in the workplace.  This group was formed to bring people together from a variety of organizations across our province to bring forward a variety of important mental health topics, resources and tools to share with one another. Our MHBPG has evolved and grown over the years, while their focus has always remained the same, on emphasizing the importance of building a healthy awareness and advocating for mental health in the workplace.
