Event description
Mental Health in the Workplace

About this Event

Meeting Details:

Taking care of your mental health is as important as excelling at your job. Believe it or not, both work performance and mental health are tightly linked! One can influence the other, therefore balance is key.

It is common that highly successful people suffer or have suffered from poor mental health at one point in their careers. If we are not careful, it can easily destroy our motivation at work along with both our professional and personal relationships.

For those reasons, we want to start 2020 in the best way possible by taking care of our Mental Health in the Workplace!

We invite all our IWS members to be part of this open conversation to share your experience and strategies on how to deal with stress, frustration, and other harmful feelings that can affect our mental health.

For this session we invited the mental health specialist Michele Moon, who will be exposing common difficulties we face that can lead to mental health problems and some strategies we can take advantage of when needed!

Speaker: Michele Moon, M.Sc.

Michele graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy in 1992 and a Masters of Science in Health Promotion Studies in 2004 from University of Alberta. She has wide knowledge in public and mental health as she has volunteered on the boards of the Calgary Pain Education Foundation and Society of Alberta Occupational Therapists. Michele is now the specialist in mental health at the University of Calgary.
