The Mentally Healthy Workplace - Halifax, NS

What does a mentally healthy workplace look like? Imagine your organization as we paint the picture: Employees are engaged and passionate about their jobs, often surpassing expectations and productivity markers set by management. Management, staff and all other players motivate one another and enjoy satisfying, reciprocal professional relationships. Sick time and disability claims are at an all-time low. Employee retention rates are excellent, and your organization functions like a well-oiled machine. Morale and employee satisfaction are so exceptional that your organization develops a stellar reputation which results in more qualified candidates when job opportunities arise. Your organization thrives because when mental health is valued and prioritized, the domino effects are endless.


The Mentally Healthy Workplace equips managers, human resource professionals, health and safety coordinators and other employee wellness champions with the necessary tools to promote workplace wellness. Mental health issues account for about one third of all disability claims in Canadian workplaces, and 70% of the total costs. In addition to the impact of absenteeism, many organizations are experiencing diminished productivity and other effects of “presenteeism” — employees being physically present at work but functioning below their capacity due to mental distress. Employers have a duty to make reasonable accommodations for health conditions whether physical or mental in nature but offering support and implementing accommodations can be complex when it comes to mental health concerns.


This three hour seminar is open to anyone interested in learning more about workplace wellness. Developed and delivered by Elizabeth Eldridge, Founder/Director of Arpeggio Health Services and Certified Psychological Health & Safety Advisor, this valuable professional development opportunity is one you don't want to miss!  Participants who attend the session in its entirety will earn a Certificate of Attendance.

We are thrilled to be able to offer in-person trainings in certain geographical areas! With this new territory comes a shift in our processes to ensure the safety of our participants and instructor team. We appreciate your patience and cooperation in following Public Health requirements. Registered participants will receive further details by email prior to their training session, but here are some things you should know before registering:

  • Seating in the training room will be arranged to ensure 2 metre distancing.
  • In effort to minimize contact between participants and venue staff, please note that coffee, tea, water and snacks will not be provided. Participants are asked to bring their own water and any other provisions.
  • Due to limited accessibility during the pandemic, scented cleaning/sanitizing products may be used in the training space. If you have severe allergies to these types of products it is not recommended that you attend, as we cannot guarantee a scent-free enviornment at this time.
  • Participants must use the hand sanitizing station at the entry to the training space. Hand sanitizer will be required when you arrive as well as any time you leave the training space and return (e.g. restroom/lunch break).
  • NL sessions: Community (non-medical) face masks are mandatory in public spaces such as the venue's hallways, restroom, lobby, etc. Our trainings are considered private events (since pre-registration is required in order to attend) therefore masks are not required inside the training room. Masks will be used during brief group activities where the ability to ensure physical distancing may be compromised. You will be unable to enter into the training space without a mask.
  • Participants will be required to read through a risk assessment upon arrival. Anyone deemed a risk for COVID-19 will not be admitted to the training room.
  • Instructors will take down names and phone numbers upon entry to the training room to facilitate contact training should it be necessary.
  • In the event that the province imposes changes to the present phase of the Zone's Recovery Plan, we may have to postpone the session with little notice. Please ensure that when you register you use an email address you have regular access to, and that you check your email before leaving home.


As with venturing in to any public space during the global pandemic, choosing to attend an in-person training does carry risk. We take every possible measure to minimize this risk, but please thoroughly consider your own comfort level and personal circumstances before deciding to register.



TRYING TO REGISTER AT WORK? If you're attempting to complete your registration using a device and/or network issued by your organization there may be a firewall in place preventing our payment platform from functioning properly, resulting in a "Hmm, Something Went Wrong" message. If you run into this issue please try registering on a personal device using a personal network. Alternatively, we can issue you an electronic invoice which can be paid directly by credit card, but please note that we are unable to reserve seats without advance payment so you will not be guaranteed a seat until the invoice is issued and paid in full. To request an invoice, email us at and let us know who to make out the invoice to, the email address where it should be sent, and session details (course type, dates, location and number of seats you’d like to reserve).
