Mental Health in the Workplace: An Accommodation Guide for Managers and Staff

The purpose of this Guide is to outline some key skills that managers in Ontario workplaces should have when presented with an employee who has a mental health concern. The main portion of the Guide is broken into three parts:

  1. Building Awareness
  2. Responding Skills
  3. Collaborating
    This Guide complements in-person training provided by the
    Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario’s Mental Health WorksTM program.
    Inside it you will find tools and techniques to not only manage your inter-personal relationships with staff, but also strategies to use when developing an accommodation plan or getting ready for an employee to return-to-work after an absence due to a mental health concern.
