8:15 am - 9:15 am

The thought behind this webinar topic was born out of an introduction to the Au Contraire Film Festival out of Quebec. This film festival is dedicated to raising awareness of mental health. The films produced are short in nature, and designed to start conversations around this important topic. Also, the fact that mental health is a very much part of our regular conversation during this pandemic, it seems timely that we address it from a workplace perspective.

Objectives of this event:
- Bring mental health awareness to the workplace via this webinar
- Provide instruction on how to identify yellow/red flags among our colleagues, team leaders, those that report to us and others, especially in this virtual setting
- Provide tactics, processes, etc. that can be implemented by individuals in the workplace
- Provide tactics, processes, etc. that can be implemented by organizations, leaders, etc.
