Participating employers will receive reports along with recommended resources to support the mental health of their employees.

“As adults we spend a large part of our lives in the workplace. It is increasingly important for employers to provide a psychological healthy and safe workplace. This has positive outcomes on productivity, absenteeism and morale. Participation in this survey will help inform gaps and areas for improvement in our community,” said Kim Willis with CMHA in a release.
