Mental Health in the Workplace

Posted 8 years ago on · Permalink

The guest speaker for the event was Dr. Ian Dawe

On Thursday, June 19th APBOT was pleased to partner with Bell Let's Talk to present a special breakfast event on mental health in the workplace at the Abilities Centre in Whitby.

Mental health is the leading cause of workplace
disability in Canada with 500,000 Canadians missing work each day
because of a mental illness, the impact in lost labour-market
participation was an estimated $20.7 billion in 2012 alone. It is, therefore, an issue that is worthy of everyone's attention.

The guest speaker for the event was Dr. Ian Dawe, an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto and the Physician-in-Chief at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences.

We are also grateful for the support of our tabletop sponsors, Andrew J. Yu, CHRP, Canadian Mental Health Association Durham. Intact Insurance – Durham and Wilson Vukelich, LLP.
