On March 26, 2013, experts will help you prepare for workplace stress,
depression, alcoholism and more
TORONTO, March 19, 2013 /CNW/ - As a boss, what do you do if an employee
is clinically depressed?
To answer that question, and more, the longest-serving national
anchorman in Canadian history, Lloyd Robertson, will join mental health
experts at EcoLog Legislation's one-day seminar, Building a Mentally
Healthy Workplace, on March 26, 2013 at the Allstream Centre in
Robertson, 79, grew up with his mother facing several mental health
challenges. It's a struggle that he details in his new memoir The Kind of Life it's Been.
"Gradually…I really developed a sense of compassion for her," Robertson
told CTV News for the launch of his new book. According to a study from
the Mental Health Commission of Canada, one in five Canadians will
experience mental illness. It's a reality that costs companies upwards
of $33 billion per year in lost productivity.
Sessions at the Building a Mentally Healthy Workplace seminar include
defining employers' rights and obligations, solutions to avoiding
potential legal liabilities, useful techniques for workplace
interventions and legal liability issues surrounding the New CSA
Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace standard.
