Mental Health in Our Workplace
The City’s Occupational Health and Safety Coordinating Committee has endorsed the Critical Incidents in the Workplace: Guide for Employees prepared by the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to aid employees who experience a critical incident in the workplace. The Committee has also endorsed the EAP’s Critical Incidents in the Workplace: Management Guide to aid management in managing critical incidents in the workplace.
The City of Toronto is committed to promoting mental health and psychological well-being in the workplace. It is also committed to actions that prevent harm to employees’ psychological health in its policies, programs and services.
As part of that commitment, the City has adopted a Psychological Health and Safety Policy. The policy commits the City to continuously building on its current actions and strengths in promoting and maintaining good mental health. This policy was developed through the Occupational Health and Safety Coordinating Committee with the active involvement of City divisions and bargaining units.
This website has been developed to enhance awareness and to provide information and resources for City employees and supervisors.
