Mental Health is the psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioural adjustment.
It includes an individual’s ability to enjoy life, and create a balance between life activities and efforts to achieve psychological resilience. Psychological health and safety refers to the absence of harm and/or threat of harm to mental well-being that a worker might experience in a workplace.
Yukon Federation of Labour, in conjunction with the BC Fed Health & Safety Centre, has developed this 4 day program designed to improve the psychological health of all workplaces. The 4 modules that make up this program are:
- Workplace Bullying & Harassment
- Preventing Workplace Stress
- Accommodating Mental Health Issues
- Understanding & Implementing the new CSA Psychological Health Standard
The curriculum focuses on personal safety factors as well as organizational factors and culture that are important to address.
A psychologically safe workplace is one that allows no significant injury to employee mental health in negligent, reckless or intentional ways and one in which every reasonable effort is made to protect the mental health of employees.
A workplace with an effective plan and strong commitment to psychological health will result in an enhanced ability to enjoy life, and create a balance between life activities and efforts to achieve psychological resilience.
