There is a common misconception that addiction and mental health disorders are easy to spot in the workplace. In reality, such obvious cases are a rarity.

Thoughtful planning and regular reinforcement are needed to create a culture that encourages workplace wellness, self-disclosure, and a lessening of the stigma surrounding mental illness and addiction. Employers who are successful are those who are proactive and knowledgeable.

This session will provide individuals and organizations with practical information on comprehensive policy development, the value of referring to high quality treatment, and the importance of return-to-work planning and monitoring.

Speaker: Darrin Taylor MTC CCAC CIP, National Director of Business Development, EHN Canada

EHN Canada was thrilled to welcome Darrin on board as National Director of Business Development in January 2020.
