How Managers Can Support Employees’ Mental Health

According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 20% of people in Canada will experience a mental health problem or illness in any given year. If you want to make sure your employees feel supported at work, here are some tips you can start implementing as soon as today!

  •     Conduct weekly check-ins—ask your employee what they need to go into their next week of work feeling prepared.   
  •     Create an anonymous forum where employees can submit questions and concerns without the worry of upsetting anyone.
  •     Be flexible about breaks—if someone prefers to take a few short breaks throughout the day instead of one long break in the middle, give your employee room to recuperate in their preferred way.

At the end of the day, it’s just about communication, open-mindedness, and listening to your employees.
