Mental Health Best Practice Group

Service Hospitality assembled a working group with a mission to discuss best practices and implement positive change surrounding mental health, psychological health and safety in the workplace and claims management in your organizations. Meeting two to three times annually, alternating between Saskatoon, Regina, and virtually, we collectively discuss best practices and policies and offer training and resources to help members promote employees’ psychological health and prevent psychological harm due to workplace factors.

Why join the group?

  • Share best practices with private, public, government, and non-profit organizations across Saskatchewan. 

  • Learn more about when psychological injuries become WCB claims and how to manage those claims effectively. 

  • Before the pandemic, the annual economic cost of mental illness in Canada was estimated at over $50 billion per year. That number continues to grow. 

  • Like physical safety, preventing psychological injuries is the best way to protect your employees and save money.

Why this matters to our industries…

  • Accommodation and food services, government services, and information and culture industries have the highest prevalence of mental illness.

  • Rates of depression are highest in industries with the most interaction with the public or clients.

  • Unfortunately, these industries are also some of the hardest hit by the pandemic. 

  • Workplace factors have a significant effect and can help to reduce both the human and economic cost of mental injuries and illnesses. 

In Canada, one in five people is affected by a mental health problem or illness. Those employed in the services sector are more likely to experience mental health issues.

In October 2016, the Saskatchewan Government passed an amendment to the Workers’ Compensation Act, 2013, establishing a rebuttable presumption for those experiencing work-related psychological injuries. This has highlighted the employer’s duties and responsibilities regarding workplace mental health. Employers are responsible for handling psychological injury claims effectively and incorporating mental health into the existing Safety Management System.

Service Hospitality wants you to be a part of our Mental Health Best Practice Group! Attend information sessions and receive emails with valuable resources. Over 120 employer organizations are participating in this group, which is regularly growing!
