Let’s talk about workplace mental health issues is the theme of a breakfast the Oakville Chamber of Commerce is hosting on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at the Harbour Banquet Hall.

“We need to get rid of the stigma around discussing mental health so we can work towards identifying the signs and providing early intervention,” commented Orla Johnston, chair of the Oakville Chamber of Commerce. “Mental health issues affects so many employees.”

Dr. Ian Dawe, physician-in-chief of Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences and associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto will provide an introduction to this complex issue and how it affects the workplace.
