Knowledge@DeGroote: Mental Health: Everyone’s Business

On Tuesday, February 2nd the DeGroote School of Business hosted an expert panel on mental health and the importance of mental health strategies in the workplace, as part of their Knowledge@DeGroote series.

The expert panel included, Dr. Aaron Shat – associate professor of human resources and management at DeGroote School of Business, Natasha Sharma – relationship therapist, author, speaker, TV/media spokesperson and doctoral student, and Mary Ann Baynton – workplace relations specialist. The panel looked at the impact of mental health to the workplace in terms of the cost to both employees and employer. They discussed tools on how to recognize that someone is dealing with a mental health issue through changes in attitude or behaviour and spoke to what organizations can do to promote health and wellness, and foster resilience in the workplace through adoptable and tangible strategies.
