CMHA’s certified Psychological Health and Safety Advisor Training program will help individuals who are working to improve psychological health and safety in workplaces or implement the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (the Standard).

Employers will see those with this certification as having the practical expertise to help improve psychological health and safety or implement the Standard in their workplaces.

Learning Objectives

After your training you should be able to:

  • State and demonstrate your ability to adhere to the overarching principles of a CMHA Certified PH&S Advisor.
  • Assess readiness for change.
  • Prepare employers to proceed with a psychological health and safety assessment.
  • Apply tools to assess and analyze psychological health and safety.
  • Give and accept feedback in a constructive way.
  • Present to employers – the business case, assessment processes, and implementation plan.

The certification training has been developed to provide an experiential learning opportunity for Advisors so they can better support organizations of all sizes. Advisors are provided with hands-on experience of the key questions, challenges and opportunities of organizations striving to implement psychological health and safety within their workplaces.

It is focused on developing competency for:

  • Presenting the business case – This focuses on convincing senior leaders and other key workplace stakeholders of the value and necessity for working toward improved psychological health and safety of their workplaces or implementation of the Standard.
  • Preparing for the assessment process – Helping employers be comfortable with and understand the scope, process and necessity of collecting data. This is required before establishing effective baseline measurements. Managing expectations and being clear about issues such as confidentiality and process are key.
  • Making recommendations – Analyzing the assessments and recommending an action plan must be done with knowledge of the organization’s constraints, competing demands and current realities. To be successful in sustaining implementation, the plan must be manageable and valuable in terms of outcomes.
