In today's modern and fast paced workplace, mental health problems are rapidly becoming the leading cause of disability in Canada. The impact of mental illness on workplaces and organizations in other settings of the Canadian economy has naturally become a prime concern for many businesses looking to foster a healthier work environment, and in turn prosper over the coming years.
Mental health remains a widely misunderstood area of well being, often perceived as a matter of purely clinical concern.
