Joint Learning Program : Mental Health: Let’s Talk!

The JLP is proud to announce that the fourth guided discussion in its Empowering Conversations discussion series, Mental Health: Let’s Talk! has launched.We would deeply appreciate your support in letting managers and unionized employees know of this offering. 

The newest Empowering Conversation is a guided discussion of 3 to 3.5 hours that will bring public service employees and their managers together to discuss lessons learned on maintaining mental health in difficult times and to begin identifying additional strategies for supporting workplace psychological health and safety.

During this session, participants will

  • discuss mental health as a continuum and the factors that impact it
  • identify workplace practices that support mental health
  • plan for renewed attention to support psychologically healthy and safe workplaces.

As with all other Empowering Conversations, Mental Health: Let’s Talk! is designed for unionized employees and their supervisors/managers of the same work teams with no more than 15 participants. Mental Health: Let’s Talk! is designed to be held via videoconference or teleconference.

To host a facilitated discussion from the Empowering Conversations series, please submit a request on the JLP website or contact your local Regional Field Coordinators for more information.
