Document Highlights

Healthy work environments are critical to preventing stress and other mental health problems. Managers play an important role in building and sustaining healthy work environments.

This tool will help managers learn more about mental health issues. It provides information and advice on preventing and recognizing mental health problems, getting employees the help they need, planning for an employee's return to work and creating a welcoming workplace.

The guide does not suggest that managers diagnose mental health problems. Rather, it is meant to help them prevent mental health problems among employees. It encourages managers to build awareness of mental health issues among employees, promote wellness, clarify performance expectations, foster a fair and respectful work culture, model healthy behaviour, give employees greater flexibility and control over their work, help employees manage their workload, and provide employees with appropriate tools and information.
