JLP at the 4th Mental Health in the Workplace Fair in Gatineau.

The Mental Health in the Workplace Fair was facilitated by speakers who have experienced mental health problems. Event organizer Silvianne Spirito noted that “Talking is the best way to break down the barriers associated with mental health. Let’s talk about the importance of mental health in the workplace.”

Event participants who visited the kiosk were impressed by the JLP’s experimental learning approach and the mandate to improve labour‑management relations to inspire positive changes in the workplace. “We had over 60 people visit the kiosk in a few hours,” said Anaëlle Conan, JLP facilitator, and Patrick Rosemond, JLP regional field coordinator for the National Capital Region.
