Support Mental Health Awareness and Stop Stigma in the Lab

Health care workers are more likely to miss work due to illness or disability than people in all other sectors. We face higher rates of burnout, compassion fatigue and sleep deprivation that can impact our psychological health and safety.

Be a Mental Health Lab Leader and join CSMLS as we advocate for the advancement of workplace psychological health and safety!

Tired of workplace mental health stigma? Want to change the psychological safety in your lab? Do you want to showcase your team and how they support those with mental health issues?
