Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, people were spending as much as 60% of their waking hours at their workplace (Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention, 2016). Despite all the flexible work arrangements (e.g., work from home), many people still spend a significant portion of their day performing the duties and functions of their employment. As a result, it is important that workplaces have the necessary measures in place to raise awareness of and provide education about suicide and mental health, while also providing the corresponding training on suicide prevention and implement mental health promotion interventions to meet the current needs of their employees.
