Thunder Bay & District Workplace Mental Health Survey
Calling all business leaders in Thunder Bay and District! TBDHU and EPID@ Work Research Institute at Lakehead University are studying the perceptions and needs of local employers when it comes to mental health in the workplace. Specifically, we aim to better understand:
- How has employee mental health and stigma changed over the pandemic?
- What are the current needs of workplace leaders regarding employee mental health?
The information provided through the survey will help us to develop and distribute relevant mental health resources for workplaces across the region.
To access the survey: https://bit.ly/Survey_WMH. It should take only about 15 minutes to complete. (The link includes the study description, the risks and benefits of participating in the study, and the informed consent process)
