In Canada, 500,000 people are absent from work due to mental health problems everyday. The Canadian Mental Health Association – Quebec Division has initiated “La Fête des voisins au travail” to try to combat this phenomenon.
According to the Association, many studies recognize that social support at the work place is a protective element of mental health. “La Fête des visions au travail” therefore encourages social events between coworkers, department members, industry colleagues or even business associates.
The idea is simple: get to know your colleagues and have a good time with them.
Whether you get together for breakfast, coffee, happy hour, dinner, or a team sport, take the opportunity to have fun outside your usual working environment. You’ll discover shared interests while talking about something other than work! It will make you feel good and help you relax.
