The Superior Mental Wellness @ Work project is a two-year multi-component initiative aimed at promoting workplace environments that reduce psychological hazards and maintain positive mental health for employees in Thunder Bay and District. Research and evaluation was integrated throughout the project. In this presentation, members of the project team provide an overview of the project and outline results of the overall program evaluation. They also share the outcomes of the training sessions included in the project to support the implementation of the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the workplace. Also discussed are focus groups results that reveal the facilitators, barriers and needs of worksite leaders to enhance employee mental wellness.
