Not Myself Today

If I were to ask you: “how are you doing today”, your answer would likely be the usual response of “fine” or “okay”.  But how are you really doing?  An initiative is being launched to encourage a mentally healthy workplace.  The following video will help explain the program being promoted by the Canadian Mental Health Association and the IAM EAP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qau7f9kpR5U&feature=youtu.be

The IAM Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available for all employees and encourages workers to seek help with not only mental health issues but any issue of a personal nature.

For more details contact your local rep for login information.  Contact information is available in the EAP section from the home page.

So, how are you doing today?
