Eastern Ontario Chapter Presents
Mental Health and resiliency in the workplace:
What can leaders do?

November 13, 2013
7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. EST
Chimo Hotel, 1199 Joseph Cyr Street, Ottawa, Ontario

Guest Speaker: Colonel Rakesh Jetly OMM, CD, MD, FRCPC, Senior Canadian Armed Forces Psychiatrist and Mental Health Advisor to the Surgeon General

The mental health of the Canadian population is a subject of broad interest. New studies and statistics on the subject emerge each week to describe the magnitude of the challenge. The economic burden of mental illness in Canada is estimated at $51 billion per year. This includes health care costs, lost productivity, and reductions in health - related quality of life. Obviously, mental health has significant implications for employee productivity and engagement. The health care environment often places increased pressures and strains on individual care providers. How do they cope and what is the function of resiliency? What is the role of leaders in this environment?

With extensive clinical experience as a military psychiatrist on deployed operations to theatres such as Afghanistan, as well as in a clinic setting back home in Canada, Colonel Rakesh Jetly, Senior Canadian Armed Forces Psychiatrist and Mental Health Advisor to the Surgeon General, brings a unique perspective to these questions.

Please join Colonel Jetly at the Eastern Ontario Chapter kick-off event for the 2013-14 Professional Development Series focused on the theme of “Resiliency”.

The event will feature a hot breakfast buffet.
