This event convened over a hundred human resources, health and safety, and wellness professionals to discuss the latest workplace mental health initiatives. This year's agenda featured organizations that have invested in workplace wellness and have seen the results in reduced absenteeism, greater employee engagement, and improved performance. Delegates learned how to create a wellness program that has a positive impact on performance, while helping their employees to become healthier and happier.

Workplace Mental Health 2016 also featured the findings of the Board's latest research on the prevalence of employer-sponsored benefits and programs in Canada that address mental health at work. Delegates learned how employers address mental health, including the guidelines and standards they use to implement their mental health strategy.
