The Working Mind

The Working Mind (TWM) is an evidence-informed program which is based on the Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) developed for the Department of National Defence by a team of clinicians and peers. The content offers education that may help to increase mental health awareness and literacy, as well as reduce mental health stigma and discrimination. We hope that increasing mental health awareness and literacy will help to support an increasingly psychologically safe culture here at the University of Regina. After completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate indicating their trained status.

The Working Mind Objectives:

  • Reduce the stigma around mental illness
  • Promote your organization’s mental health
  • Transform the way participants think and talk about mental health and mental illness
  • Help participants identify poor mental health in themselves and others
  • Give participants for coping skills to manage stress and poor mental health
  • Review mental health rights and responsibilities
  • Create a more supportive work environment

The Working Mind course offers easily applied scenario-based lessons, videos that feature people with lived experience of mental illness, reference guides, and practical handouts.

TWM for employees offers practical knowledge to increase participants’ overall comfort level with mental illness. On completing the course, employees will be able to:

  • understand mental health and mental illness
  • recognize its signs and indicators, in themselves and others
  • reduce stigma and negative attitudes toward people with mental health problems
  • support colleagues with mental health problems
  • maintain their own mental health and improve their resilience.
