Mental Health

In January, 2013 Canada released a voluntary national standard for psychological health and safety in the workplace. McMaster has long been committed to the health and well-being of all employees and is reviewing and developing additional workplace supports in recognition of this new national standard.

Mental illness affects everyone sooner or later - one in five people will experience a mental illness directly. Those of us who do not have a mental health concern ourselves, will have a friend, colleague, or family member who is dealing with a mental health issue.

A psychologically healthy work environment supports employee engagement, worker health and well-being, recruitment and retention, productivity, effective risk management and corporate social responsibility. The supports provided at McMaster aim to foster mental wellness in you and those you know.
