Mayday, Mayday Workplace Mental Health Series 2021

Fridays at 10 am EDT (Eastern Daylight Time) 

Mayday, Mayday is an internationally recognized cry for help, and Mayday itself celebrates the contribution of workers the world over, both of which apply to the critically important subject of Workplace Mental Health, especially as we all strive to cope with the impact of the ongoing global pandemic. This 5 week series will draw speakers from across Ontario and around the world to highlight and share solutions to Workplace Mental Health, Stress & Injury Prevention with consideration for both the new, and (hopefully soon) restored, "normal".
