Mental Health: Health and Wellness Strategies


The workplace is a key environment that affects our mental and physical well-being. While there is an acknowledgment and growing awareness of the role of the workplace in promoting or hindering mental wellness, employees can also take their own steps toward mental fitness.

This course will empower you to improve your own mental well-being by building a strong resilience to stress — a process referred to as mental fitness. By learning how to leverage the power of the body’s response to stress and practising specific lifestyle habits, you can elevate your health and performance while effectively managing high levels of stress.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Recognize your signs, symptoms and sources of stress.
  • Describe the impact stress has on your health and performance.
  • Define mental fitness and specific ways to improve and maintain it.
  • Elevate your health and performance through lifestyle habits that promote mental well-being.

Average time to complete this course is approximately one hour.
