Mental Health

Mental health and mentally healthy workplaces have long been challenges for the union movement in general and it is only recently that it has begun to be given the attention it deserves.

The intention of this website is really twofold. Part of the website is to give members easy access to services that support members who find themselves with mental health issues. The second is to focus on education around how we can make our workplace a psychologically safe and healthy workplace.

We hope that it will provide a useful tool as we travel this journey together.

If you are in crisis now please call any of the crisis line numbers listed below (listed in bold, red text), or dial the local emergency telephone number (often 911) in your area.
