Media Advisory - Leaders from business and industry meet in Montreal to discuss workplace mental health

MONTREAL, Feb. 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Mental health has a significant impact on every workplace. The impact is seen in absenteeism, productivity, engagement and ultimately, the bottom line. The role of the workplace in mental health is also becoming clearer. On January 16, 2013, The National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety was released. It provided a framework to reduce risks and potential liability related to workplace mental health, and to promote a mentally healthy workplace.

On February 11 and 12, Morneau Shepell with special guest Bell Canada will host Employers Connect - a gathering of leaders from Canadian business and industry - in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. The Montreal event is being held at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth, 900 Rene Levesque Blvd. West.
