Connecting Workplace Conflict and Mental Health ...
Conflict in the workplace has significant impacts on employee mental health and wellbeing. Workplace disputes cause stress and anxiety, which lead to feelings of isolation, frustration, and even depression. These invisible affects can result in physical symptoms such as headaches, stomach aches, and difficulty sleeping—all influencing how people show up to work every day.
When conflicts are not properly addressed, they can create a toxic work environment that is detrimental to company culture and the comfort, safety & welfare of teams.Prioritizing the mental health of your employees—part of which includes having effective strategies for addressing and resolving workplace conflicts—is a tangible action you can take to demonstrate care for your colleagues and a commitment to fostering positive work environments.

From Mental Health First Aid Participants
“Should be a requirement”
“This course was very informational, practical, and enjoyable. I believe it should be a requirement just as the traditional first aid courses are. I will certainly encourage my employees to attend.”
“I feel much more comfortable”
“I would recommend this course to absolutely anyone! I learned so much during the two days of the MHFA course, it really opened up my eyes to a lot of things and I feel much more comfortable talking about Mental Health with others now.”
“Has made me more empathetic”
“This course would be appropriate for all people working at the front lines with difficult clients. The knowledge shared has made me more aware and empathetic of people suffering from mental illness.”

i continue to hear positive testimonials ...
"Charmaine delivered a virtual professional development session for women in our company called 'Communicating For Success'. The session was very informative and we had lots of positive feedback from attendees in different roles in our organization. This was the kind of session it seemed many of us needed, even if we didn't know we needed it! There were lots of good takeaways and over the past 2 months I continue to hear positive testimonials on how helpful this session was for some of our employees.
I would highly recommend Charmaine as a speaker to other organizations."
