Transforming workplace mental health

We lead innovative and sustainable change in organizations that enhance the mental health of their people. When it comes to workplace mental health, we walk the talk.

In any given week, approximately 500,000 Canadians will miss work due to mental health issues.

The economic burden of mental illness in
Canada is over  $50 billion per year.

At any given time, 1 in 4 of your people
are affected by mental health problems.

Make a difference for your people,
and to your bottom line.


MHI has the effective, proven solution.

Connecting with those who share similar lived experiences is proven essential for recovery.

This is the Power of Peer Support

Workplace Results:

  • Reduces sick leave
  • Accelerates EAP use and access to professional care
  • Lowers both Long-Term and Short-Term Disability

People need more than clinical care to recover. They need Peer Support.
