Emotions Matter: Skill Building, Emotional Resilience and Social Support for Care Workers

CMHA Hamilton is partnering with McMaster to enhance workplace mental health, specifically, to develop improved supports for frontline care workers. 

Led by Dr. Diana Singh, the team will use evidence-based research to assist in the creation of workplace resources and strategies designed to promote emotional resiliency among community care professionals. 

Broad Objectives: 

  1. Examine the broader social context in which socioemotional stressors arise during client care delivery. 
  1. Design a standardized social support and skills building program for emotionally challenging/laborious work environments. A pilot study of the new program will be conducted with CMHA Hamilton’s front line staff.
