Mental Health Seminar

Want to learn how to improve mental health in your workplace and beyond? St. John Ambulance is offering Master Builders members a free one-day seminar for eligible building and construction industry workers, funded by CSQ.

The course provides participants with information on common mental illnesses, including depression and anxiety, as well as post-traumatic stress, suicidal thoughts and substance use disorders.

Participants will learn how to identify people who may be suffering from mental health problems, provide initial support and refer to professional services where appropriate, as well as how to promote a mentally healthy workplace, and develop strategies for self-care.
