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.

Safety for Supervisors

The University of Regina maintains its commitment to the legal, moral and ethical responsibility of providing a safe learning and work environment for members of our campus community. A part of this commitment includes compliance with Saskatchewan Occupational Health and Safety legislation, and to ensure that all formal leaders on our campuses understand their role and responsibilities.

During each academic term (unless otherwise stated) Health and Safety (Human Resources) will be offering various dates/times for supervisors/managers to register for the Safety for Supervisors course.

Under the Saskatchewan Employment Act, a supervisor is defined as a person who is authorized, by an employer, to oversee or direct the work of the employer’s workers, and more specifically to the University, direct the learning activities of our students. The Safety for Supervisors course introduces supervisors to the University of Regina Health and Safety Management System (HSMS) which assists in meeting these obligations and their legal health and safety responsibilities. When supervisors effectively use all aspects of the HSMS, they not only meet their legal due diligence responsibilities, it also strengthens the overall safety culture of the areas they supervise.

This interactive in-person course for supervisors is 3.5 hours in length and requires approximately one hour of work prior to the course.  A certificate of completion will be issued to each participant after completing the course.

Please watch your email on Thursday, April 25 for the announcement of the Safety for Supervisors course dates and times being offered during the 2024 Spring term.  Each course has a maximum of 20 participants.

Thank you for keeping our campuses a safe place to learn, work, and live.
