What is Can You See Me?


The Can You See Me? campaign is a four week mental health awareness initiative offered by United Way Halton & Hamilton. The program is available to local companies to run in their workplace to address issues surrounding family mental health and the stigma surrounding mental health issues and disorders. The components of the campaign include:

  • Weekly emails to all employees from CEO, with content provided by UWHH
  • Anti-stigma posters for the workplace, adapted once a week
  • Access to an educational e-module to all employees
  • Workplace lunch-and-learns for interested employees
  • Supplementary written reference materials available

Did you know? It is estimated that improving the management of mental health in the workplace could decrease losses to productivity by as much as 30% and result in annual savings of nearly $400,000 in an organization of 1000 employees. (Mental Health Commission of Canada, 2010)
