Integrating Mental Health into Your Wellness Program

More days of work loss and work impairment are caused by mental illness than any other chronic conditions such as diabetes, asthma and arthritis.

The Royal Canadian Mint (the Mint) stands apart as one of the first Crown corporations to integrate mental health resources as part of its workplace wellness program. Through a staged approach, and leveraging the latest in digital resources, it continues to evolve its mental health services to meet changing technology and workers’ needs.
