Welcome to People Connect. We are excited to announce the launch of People Connect, People Corporation’s Mental Health Resource Centre. People Connect offers leaders resources, information, and training to help them create a psychologically safe workplace.
The services provides members and their family members with educational tools, an online assessment, and access to immediate care through virtual therapy. One in five Canadians will experience a mental health condition this year. As well, a depressed member/employee works at approximately 62% of capacity when experiencing symptoms. Over 60% of Members/Employees want Mental Health Programs while only 21% of Employers offer them.
As a member of Sheet Metal Workers Local Union 296 and the Coughlin/People Corporation family, effective November 1, 2019, you can now access People Connect as part of your mental health tool box.
