Certificate Program in the Management of Workplace Mental Health and Psychological Safety

HRPA is partnering with the Ontario Psychological Association and BizLife Solutions to offer a comprehensive Certificate Program in the Management of Workplace Mental Health and Psychological Safety 

Ontario has just passed Bill 132 requiring all Ontario organizations to implement
programs to ensure the safety of workers from sexual harassment in the workplace.
The Canadian National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety is fast becoming
the baseline for creating mentally healthy workplaces.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act has implemented recent amendments based
on Bill 132.
These groundbreaking changes create the opportunity to inspire meaningful support for
mental health and psychological safety in Ontario workplaces.
As a business professional you need expert knowledge, practical information, tools and
resources to meet the challenge. This weekend intensive Certificate Program,
developed and presented by top level psychologists, lawyers, and business leaders,
delivers what you need.
By the end of the program participants will leave with a tangible Workplace Mental
Health and Psychological Safety Action Plan for preventing, managing and responding
to the complexities and challenges of mental health issues in the workplace.
