The state of mental wellness in modern workplaces is bleak — anxiety and depression are on the rise, stigma remains high, technology continues to blur the line between work-life and home-life, and employers aren’t doing enough to combat the problem head-on. It’s time for change, but when it comes to mental health, what does real change look like?
Join Made of Millions, Shopify, and other leading brands for a candid conversation about mental health at work. We’re asking Canadian companies to get real about the challenges their employees face, and the role they as a business can play in supporting mental health, combating stigma and reducing employee turnover.
