What Is Workplace Mental Health Awareness?
Approximately one fifth of working Canadians suffer from a mental health issue during the course of their careers. However, employees tend to pay little attention to these illnesses, both because they lack the necessary information to properly acknowledge them and because most companies do not provide a support framework for the signaling and treatment of mental health disorders.
To promote a healthier work environment, both employees and their supervisors must first familiarize themselves with the nature of mental health illnesses and the reasons why it is essential to prevent and treat these issues before they take a severe turn. This safety course in workplace mental health awareness is designed for exactly such a purpose.
Who Needs Workplace Mental Health Awareness?
All Canadian workers and their employers can benefit from Workplace Mental Health Awareness training, especially since mental health disorders are reported across all types of industries and jobs. Even those who have not yet landed a job can take this course to better prepare themselves to deal with work-related psychological issues.
Due to the nature of their work, employees in certain industries are more likely to develop mental health issues. Such industries include:
- Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare,
- Waste Management,
- Office Work.
Who Is Responsible for Workplace Mental Health Awareness Training?
Mental health has traditionally been viewed as a very personal and intimate matter, yet employers are just as responsible for the psychological wellbeing of their workers as they are for the latter’s physical safety. It is therefore the obligation of businesses to ensure that employees have access to Workplace Mental Health Awareness training.
Meanwhile, workers must undergo training and acquire a number of different strategies to promote mental health or deal with work-related psychological issues. The course can also be completed by individuals prior to being hired in order to improve their CVs.
What Do You Need to Learn?
To complete this awareness training program, you must be able to define mental health and differentiate mental illness from stress and other conditions. You must also demonstrate knowledge of the different types of mental disorders and provide examples of the most frequently occurring psychological illnesses in the workplace. Finally, you should be able to describe preventative measures, as well as early detection strategies for mental health issues.
How Long Is the Certificate Valid?
Employees whose work predisposes them to developing mental illnesses should re-take this course on a yearly basis. Although less obvious than physical injuries, psychological issues that go untreated for extensive periods of time can be just as dangerous.
What Other Courses Should I Take?
Workplace Mental Health Awareness is often purchased together with Lone Worker Safety, Office Ergonomics, and Workplace Harassment.
