Mental health statistics alarm us – 20 percent of Canadians will personally experience a mental illness in their lifetime and almost one half (49 percent) of those who feel they have suffered from depression or anxiety have never seen a doctor or medical professional about this problem.
This October, UHN celebrates Healthy Workplace Month. The goals of Canada's Healthy Workplace Month is to increase awareness of three elements key to a healthy workplace:
Health and lifestyle practices – the personal choices you make each day
Workplace culture and a supportive environment – our psychosocial work environment
Physical environment and occupational health and safety – our workplace surroundings.
At UHN we're fortunate to have a healthy workplace program which many of you take part in. To celebrate the importance of health and well-being this month, UHN's wellness program is offering a multitude of activities throughout the month of October, including:
Wellness activity booths at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret, and Toronto Rehab's University Centre, Bickle and Lyndhurst lobbies, with freebies, information, prize options and seated massages
