X Effects Conference Women and mental health in the workplace

500,000 Canadians miss work every day because of mental health problems.
And two-thirds of them are women.
Yet when it comes to women's mental health in the workplace, the issues,
their causes and management are under-researched. Women's mental health
issues are costing a fortune and causing untold suffering.
 We need to take action. New thinking on how to improve the quality of
the workplace experience for women with mental health issues is urgently
On April 1, the X Effects Conference will bring together clinicians, human resource
professionals, corporate executives, policy makers, researchers,
educators, healthcare workers and the interested public.
Together, we will ask the tough questions, develop creative solutions
and move the agenda for women's mental health in the workplace to the
next level.
