Host Deedee Slye interviews Patricia Wall – a navigator for the recently created Office of Workplace Mental Health (OWMH), an initiative of the NSGEU and the Public Service Commission (PSC). The Office provides support to NSGEU members who work for the PSC, Tourism Nova Scotia, or Nova Scotia Pension Corporation, all members who belong to the Nova Scotia Public Service LTD plan.
Navigators help employees identify and connect with the mental health resources and services they need in a confidential manner. They also help leaders and managers create safe and supportive workplaces.
The Office’s three mental health navigators are located throughout the province. Patricia supports members who live and/or work in the Western region.
