Building a psychologically healthy and safe workplace takes time. While there isn’t one right place to start, industry standards are clear: every organization has a responsibility to start somewhere. Let our CSA & industry experts guide you, leveraging the strengths your organization already has.

It’s one thing to have depth and breadth of knowledge in the area of mental health and the workplace, and it’s another to be able to communicate this information in a meaningful and concise way to audiences from all walks of life. Dr. Samra has mastered both.

Shoba Thomas, Former Attendance Support Consultant, School Boards Co-operative Inc.

I began working with Dr. Samra in 2014. From our first conversation I was confident we would enjoy working together as she exhibits respect and professionalism in all aspects of her work and relationships. University of Fredericton (UFred) is proud to have Dr. Samra as the Program Lead for our Centre for Psychological Health Sciences. Dr. Samra developed the content for our Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace programs. UFred feels very fortunate to have someone of Dr. Samra’s caliber lead the charge on such important coursework. It’s a joy to watch her grow her practice and expand the services offered through MyWorkplaceHealth, an amazing resource for workplaces with respect to mental health. I value Dr. Samra’s energy, enthusiasm, and spirit and feel blessed to have this opportunity to work together.

In 2018, Mindful Employer Canada was in the middle of leading a two-year case study with 25 not-for-profits across Canada. By the time we reached out to Dr. Samra and her team, we had already created surveys and been assessing people leaders for 18 months. Our data was in absolute chaos. If Dr. Samra and her team hadn’t been so willing to work with the data we already had, and help us to improve our assessment system, this case study may have been a flop. We are forever grateful to Dr. Samra and her team for their amazing work, and they are a resource that we will definitely use in the future.

FAQs

You’ve already begun! The process initiates the moment you become aware there is a need to change. There are plenty of programs, initiatives, and training options to work toward implementing – but first, you need to understand and assess your organizational pain points and evaluate your existing strengths. After doing so, you might recognize that you already have some of the elements of PH&S in place: build on those strengths and begin to implement strategies to target one of your identified challenge areas. We recommend a thoughtful, concerted approach – where you, step-by-step, sequentially address challenge areas. PH&S is not a rush to the finish line – it’s about embedding a sustainable psychological health and safety management system within your organization, and that takes time.

We understand it can feel overwhelming, but rest assured that our MyWorkplaceHealth CSA developers, industry experts, and mental health specialists will support you every step of the way.

No! In fact, we recommend just the opposite: to enhance the success of PH&S programs and initiatives, the journey toward enhancing workplace health should be a gradual, but steady undertaking. Embedding psychological health and safety within your organizational culture – and at every stage of the employment life cycle – takes time. Often, starting with organizational pain points is a natural place to begin. All organizations have existing strengths in terms of PH&S, so we also recommend identifying and enhancing those early in your organizational journey. Being aware you have some existing gaps is already a great start. MyWorkplaceHealth can help with the rest.

The support MyWorkplaceHealth offers depends on where you are at in your psychological health and safety (PH&S) journey, and your organization’s unique needs and stressors. A comprehensive approach to workplace PH&S involves: (1) Assessing your work environment and building a cohesive strategy; (2) Developing your people leaders’ skills to align with the Standard; and (3) Enhancing employee psychological health and resilience. We recommend identifying the areas in which you have the greatest gaps or challenge points and beginning there.
