Free Session: Mental Health & Your Workplace
February 3, 2021, 12:00 - 1:00 PM
The COVID-19 pandemic has spawned a new mental health crisis in Saskatchewan. Concerns over personal and loved ones’ health, anxiety around employment and finances, and loneliness stemming from social isolation has had severe impacts on youth, adults, and seniors alike.
In 2021, insurance brokers are committed to doing their part to make a difference. The #BrokersCare Campaign for Mental Health is a yearlong IBAS initiative, presented in partnership with Wawanesa Insurance, dedicated entirely to raising funds and awareness to support improved mental health outcomes.
100% of all proceeds will go directly to fund targeted, grassroots mental health projects in communities across the province. Be sure to stay tuned for announcements on exciting campaign fundraisers coming soon!
To celebrate the launch of this campaign, and to help you kick-start a conversation on mental health in your workplace, we will be holding a FREE lunch hour session on Wednesday, February 3, open to all IBAS members and partners (entitled Mental Health & Your Workplace). See below for more information and to register.
Grab your lunch and join Saskatoon’s Heidi Fischer from 12 – 1 p.m. on Wednesday, February 3, for a one-hour conversation on how to promote positive mental health in your brokerage or business, including practical tools and information for all levels of staff, from front-line brokers to senior management.
