Many of us have stressful jobs. A negative workplace can be exhausting, overwhelming and damaging to your health. Whether you have an unreasonable and inattentive manager, or you’re struggling to adapt to changes or restructuring, all workers deal with job challenges at some point during their careers.
This workshop contains tools (created by workers, for workers) to help deal with workplace stress and its consequences. The focus is on mental health, and preventing mental injury.
Focusing on all aspects of your health, including the emotional and mental, does pay off in the long-term. Emphasizing preventative tips and tricks gives you an advantage in dealing with stressful situations or sudden changes that pop up later. It’s an important act of self-care that will extend far into other areas of your life.
Here’s what the toolkit contains:
Consequences of workplace stress
Reactions from employers, government
Workers’ rights (Ontario-specific)
A sample action plan

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
