Navigating a workplace psychological injury

Mental health and wellness is an increasingly important factor in the return to work process across all industries in Nova Scotia, and none more so than with First Responders. In this session, we will discuss how an organization can best support it’s employees after a workplace injury to get the best outcomes possible. Whether the injury is primarily physical or psychological, this approach will help employees feel empowered to participate fully in the process and shorten the length of time they are away from the workplace.
