It’s reasonable to assume that, on occasion, we may find ourselves overwhelmed, stressed or challenged by pressures that affect us at work. Maintaining good mental health, and providing support for those who may be coping with a mental health-related issue is in everyone’s best interest.
That’s why Human Resources at Dalhousie is sharing a resource, called “Working Through It,” with those who want to subscribe, as part of our ongoing approach to mental health education and awareness at Dal.
The resources cover a variety of mental health-related issues experienced by real people while they were at work, off work or returning to work. It also includes videos of people who went through tough times while at work who discuss coping strategies and experiences, and share printable resources.
If interested, subscribe by sending an email to HealthyDal@Dal.ca with “Working Through It” in the subject line. Over the next several months, you will be sent an email each week that will highlight a different component of Working Through It, which is part of a broader initiative of Workplace Strategies for Mental Health. The emails will provide links to resources that can help all of us be more aware of mental health at work, and how we can reach out to those who may be struggling.
It only takes a few minutes of your workday to watch the short video or review the resources in the weekly emails. Each email will have the subject line Working Through It, so it will be easily identifiable. Please share the links and resources with those who could benefit or to engage others in discussion of these issues.
An introduction to Working Through It is available by watching this video online.
