What is the Relief for Business program?

Relief supports businesses and organizations based in Quebec and across Canada in creating a work environment that is healthy, balanced and conducive to good mental health. The Relief for Business program, intended for executives, managers and employees, combines awareness, education, philanthropy and leading-edge research. The program is made up of two components, which can be tailored to your needs:

The Relief for Business membership program involves an official commitment by your business’s or organization’s senior management to the well-being of your employees.

Membership in the program, which is annual, sends a clear message to your employees (and partners/clients) about the importance of mental health within your business or organization and positions you as a mental health advocate.
