Take the Suck out of Mental Health
Mental health is just as important as going to your doctor for an annual check-up but did you know that the “suck it up” phrase around mental health still exists in our world? Leanne Companion brings some great information to the forefront on breaking down mental health stigmas that you may come across—and that includes in the workplace. In honour of Mental Health Week earlier this month, we encourage you to celebrate mental health year-round and keep these tips handy in your workplace for you and your colleagues.
