It’s well understood that human emotions play a role, both positive and negative, in physical and mental health. The surprising new finding is that these same emotions can sometimes act as barriers for people struggling with financial problems. In this session, we will first share Manulife’s latest research revealing that the impacts of emotional barriers to financial wellness are far-reaching. While important, education and financial literacy programs aren’t enough to help the large percentage of Canadians who are financially unwell. Then we will discuss what organizations can do to help their employees now and in the future. And finally we will focus on the positive change we can bring when we apply practical and evidence-based strategies for workplace mental health.
