Canadian Mental Health Week is May 6 to 12, 2024. The theme of this year’s campaign is “A Call to be Kind.” This theme advocates a “compassion-first” approach when interacting with someone struggling with mental health. And we’re doing our part to promote this approach.

We’re pleased to share two new education videos with you:

The videos promote a better understanding of the two mental disorders that most commonly lead to long-term disability claims. They can also help create more compassionate people leaders within organizations.

We’ll be sending out the video links to plan sponsors in a Focus Update on April 25, 2024. The update will also highlight other free resources that can help. This includes a new toolkit with resources they can share with employees in support of Canadian Mental Health Week.

Maintaining the focus on mental health

We continue to encourage Clients to understand the important role they play in supporting mental health. This Canadian Mental Health Week outreach is a touchpoint that can help. It encourages action and highlights some key solutions.
