For Employees | Responding with Respect Mental Health Skills Workshop

Responding with Respect: Workplace Mental Health Skills for Employees

Evidence-based research indicates early intervention can mitigate the impact of mental illness or mental health challenges. Employees are often the first to notice a change in a coworker’s behaviour, but lack the skills to speak with them about their observations and concerns.

In this workshop, employees will learn how to engage a coworker in a respectful conversation—to make them aware of the changes they have observed using safe and supportive communication skills.


Employees will learn how to:

  • Build their knowledge about mental health
  • Navigate the language of stigma
  • Understand the mental health continuum
  • Be aware of the impacts of mental health issues
  • Increase awareness of self-care for mental health
  • Use the 4R Action Tookit™ to develop skills to talk with coworkers

All employees.
