Workplace Mental Health 2017

2017 Event

The annual Workplace Mental Health conference is Canada’s top conference devoted exclusively to workplace mental health. Since this event’s inception over ten years ago, workplace mental health has moved to the top of the priority list for organizations of every size across the country. The Conference Board has continued to elevate the conversation through our research and this conference.

The 2017 event offered new thinking and practical case studies that helped employers of all sizes improve the mental health of their workplace. Delegates discussed mental health initiatives with peers, and how to start, manage, and optimize mental health programs. No other event offers such in-depth exploration of mental health in the workplace—new ideas, practical guidance, essential research—this event has it all.
