The Working Mind (TWM) Virtual is an evidence-based program designed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) to promote mental health and reduce the stigma around mental illness in the workplace. The training is designed to:

  • Increase your awareness of mental health;
  • Reduce stigma and other barriers to care in the workplace;
  • Encourage mental health conversations;
  • Strengthen your resilience in order to maintain wellness; and
  • Help you support yourself and others.

TWM for employees offers practical knowledge to increase participants’ overall comfort level with mental illness. Upon completing the course, employees will be able to:

  • Understand mental health and mental illness.
  • Recognize its signs and indicators, in themselves and others.
  • Reduce stigma and negative attitudes toward people with mental health problems.
  • Maintain their own mental health and improve their resilience.
