Workplace mental health has undergone a paradigm shift in the past year. A study from TELUS revealed more than 75% of employees have said they have struggled at work due to anxiety caused by the pandemic, with 80% saying they would consider quitting their current position for a job that focuses more on employee mental health. Mental health is now a total workplace issue, and companies are looking for ways to build a strategy that permeates through the entire organization. This session examines the mental health brand shift, how employers are moving towards prevention, and the benefits an upstream, preventative strategy can bring organizations.

His work at headversity brought together a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, and educators to build an industry-redefining platform that is setting the new standard for workplace mental health, working with some of North America’s largest and leading employers.
