Registration now open for Mental Health Works’ 2020 conference

Mental Health Works is bringing together workplace mental health leaders, advocates and experts this June to share insights on how people and organizations are impacting mental wellness at work.

IMPACT: A vision of change for mental health in the workplace is set for June 1-2 at the Hilton Toronto. Registration is now open at

Designed for leaders, supervisors and front-line staff trying to support employee mental health, participants will gain practical skills to take back to their workplaces to address mental health.

Mental Health Works is accepting abstracts for workshops until March 1. It’s looking for sessions that are participatory, groundbreaking and explore the impact people and organizations are having on mental health and well-being in the workplace. The following areas are being considered:

  • First responders and allied health professionals: This workshop stream looks at the unique experiences related to psychological health and safety facing first responders and allied health and human services professionals in their community service roles, and strategies to ensure a supportive workplace in this sector.
  • Employee impact: This stream looks at the employee experience of psychological health and safety (PH&S) in the workplace. It includes abstracts from those looking to not only describe emerging examples of employee champions and leaders, but also targeted interventions for Canada’s workers meant to improve PH&S.
  • Employer impact: This stream considers the impact paying attention to PH&S has on the organization’s bottom-line and what employers are doing to ensure the workplace is safe.
  • The workforce and workplace of tomorrow: Special consideration will be given to abstracts detailing emerging trends, including the impact technology is having on PH&S, burnout, presenteeism, loneliness and isolation at work.

Early bird rates are available until April 26. More information, including keynote speakers and concurrent sessions, is coming soon. Keep up to date at
