There are many reasons why people develop mental illness. They can be genetic, biological, and even some can be a result of childhood trauma among other stressors.

And more importantly, how do we stop the stigma of mental health?

  2. To Normalize common mental health problems

About the presenter:

Dave PhillipsDave Phillips is passionate about helping individuals and organizations experience greater levels of health. Given his professional and life experience, he is uniquely qualified to come alongside companies and organizations who recognize the importance of psychological safety and to lead in an emotionally intelligent way. Dave loves to teach, consult and coach managers in leading employees to maximize their potential. He is grounded in current research and am committed to promoting an evidence-based, best practices approach in whatever arena he’s working.

As well, since 1992 when Dave first began to see clients with significant childhood and adult trauma, he has been actively connected to the world of PTSD treatment. Today, his field is beginning to recognize traumatic psychological injury as underlying most of the common mental health conditions that show up, both in the workplace and in our personal lives. In the light of this a strong passion of his is to help companies (in the development of robust programs and policy), and to equip managers (to effectively manage their employees with mental health problems), from this trauma-informed place. The Canadian workplace is not required to pamper employees or to become “quasi” mental health centers… but can we develop happier and healthier workplaces that allow our employees to thrive? This is the question that progressive companies are asking.

Dave holds 2 graduate degrees in counseling psychology and have over 30 years experience in the mental health field including working with hundreds of companies in multiple industries. His expertise and certifications include:

  • Psychological health and safety
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Management coaching
  • Mental Health First Aid
  • Mental health HR/LR
  • Respect in the Workplace
  • Substance Abuse in the workplace
