Mental Health Works to provide free webinars on workplace mental health amid COVID-19 concerns

In this time of uncertainty and stress related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mental Health Works will be providing a free webinar series to help employees and employers address the impact these circumstances may have on our work and well-being.

Public health agencies are urging the public to practice social distancing and self-isolation and as a result many people are working from home where possible. To help organizations and their staff with this new dynamic, Mental Health Works will be hosting six webinars about best practices in workplace mental health.

Two of these webinars will focus on mental wellness specific to the health care setting. These will explore topics relevant to both hospitals and clinics, as well as telehealth professionals and those who work to support patient outcomes such as custodial staff, security professionals and administrators. Please click the links below to register.
