Chris Poot, Manager, Return to Work Program Services, WCB: If you’re just trying to teach employers that, not unlike physical injuries, to come prepared and try and figure out with the individual what their coping strategy is going to be. So, if you have a person with a physical injury, and they need a break every hour or something like that, to rest or to walk or whatever, what’s the corresponding kind of allowance that you need to make for an individual with a mental health issue to be able to get through their day? Just trying to figure out what that coping strategy is. It’s not really complex. For most employers, that’s sufficient.
Chris Poot, Manager, Return to Work Program Services, WCB: There are a number of simple things that people can do and they should ask, “What do I just I start with? Maybe I can’t get involved in all that stuff now but how do I just start that?” And our courses teach that. People come out of those classes going, “Wow, I can actually use this today.” And so, I’m encouraging every employer, even if you don’t have a lot of claims, to take this course because, finally when you do have one, at least you understand what to do and how to do it, and everyone wins in that circumstance.
