All learning materials are included.
Mental Health First Aid – Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, Mental Health First Aid is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved. Offered monthly, this 2-day, 12 hour workshop provides certification from the Mental Health Commission of Canada. It aims to improve mental health literacy, and provide the skills and knowledge to help people better manage potential or developing mental health problems in themselves, a family member or a colleague. So many people benefit from taking Mega Health’s Mental Health First Aid Course. Here’s a quick list of recent participants. Click here to learn more and to register.

Implementation of the National Standards for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace – Get support implementing these national standards in a 3-hour workshop. Although the standards are voluntary at this time, they do provide a methodology and foundation ahead of legal requirements that will lead to measurable improvement in psychological health and safety for Canadian employees in their workplaces. Robin offers clarity, guidance and time-savings, by distilling this 200 page document into 8 steps.
Lunch ‘n’ Learn – At Mega Health at Work, we are passionate about erasing the dangerous stigma surrounding mental health. We believe that one of the best ways to do this is through education and open discussion. To help facilitate this process, we are proud to offer informal lunch and learn sessions.
Compassion Fatigue – Those who are responding to life threatening situations, dealing with difficult or traumatic events, or who are in a role of constantly caring for others may be at risk of suffering from Compassion Fatigue, an extreme state of tension leading to secondary traumatic stress for the helper. Compassion Fatigue can lead to low staff morale, attendance issues, disability leave, and even suicide. It has further damaging effects on the people receiving care and on the community. This workshop explores the basics of Compassion Fatigue and provides staff with proven tools and tips to prevent secondary traumatic stress.
Can We Talk? – Suicide, PTSD, and other trauma/stress related issues are a growing concern among first responders. The increasing number of disability claims, work related suicides, and resignations are directly impacting the effectiveness of all first responder communities. More and more, leaders in first responder communities are being called upon to do something about this growing problem. This interactive process facilitated by the MegaHealth at Work team, creates a safe, confidential, and open space in which to begin acknowledging issues, creating dialogues, and even exploring options and solutions.
What Supervisors and Managers Need to Know – More and more in today’s workplace, Supervisors and Managers are called upon to manage and support staff struggling with mental health issues. Depression, anxiety, and other wellness disruptions are becoming serious productivity and performance issues. Few leadership or management training programs prepare managers for the challenges of supervising staff with mental health illnesses. In this engaging and informative 3-hour workshop you will learn not only how to effectively recognize mental health related concerns, but how to implement a practical process for supporting all employees in the workplace.
Make A Plan – First Responders experience job-related stress that can have a severe negative impact on their personal relationships. The Make A Plan workshop guides these individuals in building skills and concrete plans so they can stay healthy, happy, and have more successful outcomes in their personal lives.
