Employers in Haliburton County are being offered a series of workshops to support mental health at work.

The Haliburton-Kawartha-Pine Ridge District Health Unit is having a series of workshops called healthy minds at work.

This has been made possible through the funding from the Ontario Ministry of Labour.

Our local health unit says usually in a workplace health and safety is only thought of in physical terms, but the mental well-being of workers is just as important.

They say in these workshops employees will learn insight and solutions for creating a healthy work environment.
