Craig Bavis will present on how to accomodate stress, anxiety and depression

Craig Bavis will be one of the presenters at the November 26, 2014 Lancaster House Audio Conference: Dealing with a Workplace Epidemic: Accommodating Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Stress, anxiety and depression have a profound impact on Canadian workplaces, contributing to lost productivity, absenteeism and workplace conflict. Despite the prevalence of these mental health issues, they remain misunderstood and highly stigmatized. As a result, many employees do not seek help or accommodation for these conditions. Moreover, employers and unions face unique challenges in accommodating stress, anxiety and depression because these disabilities are episodic (resulting in periods of health and of illness) and invisible (not readily apparent). In this audio conference, Lancaster’s panel of experts will discuss ways to recognize and accommodate stress, anxiety and depression as well as proactive measures to improve mental health in the workplace.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Recognizing and understanding stress, anxiety and depression
  • Preventing mental illness and promoting mental health
  • Medical information and evaluation:
  • Accommodation
  • Discipline and discharge
