Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health Week October 1-7,2018
Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW) is an annual national public education campaign designed to help open the eyes of Canadians to the reality of mental illness. The week was established in 1992 by the Canadian Psychiatric Association, and is now coordinated by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH) in cooperation with all its member organizations and many other supporters across Canada.
Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety have produced a smartphone application (app) which will allow the user to fill out the Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire (COPSOQ) and have their responses automatically scored.It is generally believed that some stress is okay ("positive stress") but when the level of stress is greater than you can handle, both mental and physical changes may occur. Factors in the workplace can cause, contribute to, or worsen our mental distress, which may affect our physical or mental health. Stress is also an important issue for employers who realize that when workers are not well, the business is affected.
Download this free app to measure your level of stress through a series of questions about work demands, organizational factors, relationships, workplace values, health and safety concerns, stress symptoms and offensive behaviours.
