Human Resources: Mental Health & Accommodation

Often when we speak about Mental Health, we tend to focus on the
discussions around mental disorders and mental health problems. While it
is important to understand and talk about this, it may not speak to how
mental health challenges may show up in the workplace. Training will focus
on what you can do on a day-to-day basis to support your employee’s
mental health and how to recognize the signs that there may be
concerns. Participants will learn the legislative requirements surrounding
accommodations, what roles employees and employers play in the
accommodation process, and how to work through difficult
conversations. Participants will also be provided with:

  • The knowledge and understanding of mental health relevance to the
  • Effective strategies to maintain your own positive sense of wellbeing
    and decreasing the stigma of poor mental health.
  • How to help employees become productive team members.
  • What accommodation means and the legislative requirements
    around the ‘Duty to Accommodate’
  • The knowledge to ensure you are not discriminating against any
    employees, based on prohibited grounds, under Human Rights.
