Protecting the psychological health and safety of employees has never been more important—for Canadians, for employers, and for the Canadian economy. Since launching the world’s first National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (Standard), the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) has been helping employers across the country to safeguard the mental health of their employees through the Standard. To date, it has been downloaded over 25,000 times. The Standard provides a framework to promote the mental health of, and prevent the psychological harm to, employees, providing guidance on resources to help organizations of all sizes and sectors. This voluntary tool benefits all employees and positively affects organizational health, including the bottom line.
