Milieu de travail

Le fait d’avoir une maladie mentale signifie non seulement de faire des efforts pour la gérer, mais aussi de composer avec ses répercussions dans sa vie et chez ses proches. Certaines personnes subissent des conséquences négatives au travail ou pire, elles cessent de travailler à cause des préjugés.

La section « Lieu de travail » du site Web vise à renseigner les employés comme les employeurs, et à les orienter sur la façon de favoriser et de soutenir un climat positif à l’égard de la santé mentale en milieu de travail.

« Santé mentale en milieu de travail » (disponibles en anglais seulement, pour le moment)
