13 Factors: Addressing Mental Health in the Workplace

The Mental Health Commission of Canada, in partnership with Ottawa Public Health, adapted content from The Mindful Employer, to develop a series of short animated videos that aim to raise awareness around the 13 factors that can impact the mental health of employees in the workplace and encourage conversations on methods for promoting psychologically safe places to work.

The 13 factors of psychological health and safety in the workplace are:

  • Organizational Culture
  • Psychological and Social Support
  • Clear Leadership & Expectations
  • Civility & Respect
  • Psychological Demands
  • Growth & Development
  • Recognition & Reward
  • Involvement & Influence
  • Workload Management
  • Engagement
  • Balance
  • Psychological Protection
  • Protection of Physical Safety

This video series is applicable to any workplace in any type of workforce. They are especially useful for organizations with limited resources, as they can be shared at no cost. All videos are available in both official languages.
