April 15: Province Participating in Study on Workplace Mental Health


Nova Scotia’s public service will take part in a national case study on psychological health and safety lead by the Mental Health Commission of Canada. Every year, one in five Canadians will experience a mental health problem or illness, with mental illnesses being the number one cause of disability claims in the workplace. The three-year study will look at best practices and identify areas of improvement for the implementation of the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety.
