Mental Health in the Workplace: Towards Evidence Based Practice LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

As a result of a confluence of factors, Canadian organizations are now showing an unprecedented interest in mental health issues and in implementing mental health programming in the workplace. Many of these efforts are overly narrow in scope and not supported by empirical evidence. I argue for a comprehensive strategy for workplace mental health suggesting that such an approach would be based on three elements (i.e., prevention, intervention, and accommodation). Moreover, an evidence-based approach to workplace mental health programming must be based on rigorous evaluation of interventions and, in this context, the lack of organizational interventions is particularly troubling. Together these issues suggest the need for Canadian psychology to take leading role in identifying and evaluating organizational practices.
