Upon amalgamation, NSHA adopted the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. In doing so, NSHA joined organizations across the country in following a “set of voluntary guidelines, tools and resources intended to guide organizations in promoting mental health and preventing psychological harm at work.”

In support of the standard, NSHA has been rolling out The Working Mind Program, an anti-stigma and resiliency mental health awareness program for staff and leaders, with 76 leaders having received training as of March 31, 2017.
