On the first Wednesday of each month, let's all wear red in support of Healthy Minds at Work!

When we think of health and safety at work, we most often think of physical safety. But we shouldn't stop there.

The MGEU's Healthy Minds at Work campaign aims to bring our mental health into focus as well. 

Our employers are responsible for creating workplaces that protect and promote our mental health -- and it's time we started working together to make our psychological health a priority.

On the first Wednesday of every month, show you care and help us continue the conversation about the importance of psychologically safe workplaces.

  • Wear something red to work;
  • Wear a Healthy Minds at Work pin, lanyard, mask, badge holder, or stick-on tattoo;
  • Spend some time on this website and learn more about how to be mental health advocate; and
  • Share the campaign with others in your workplace and online with a 'Wear Red Wednesday' selfie and tag it with #HealthyMindsAtWork #WearRedMGEU

Contact the MGEU Resource Centre to request pins, lanyards, masks, badge holders, or stick-on tattoos for your Local.
