If you were to leave Canadian Mental Health Association, what would be the reason?
I was a peer support worker and twice I was sent off work because my manager deemed me unwell this was based on the views of other staff so unprofessional.... Put me right into financial crisis and ecsaserbated my already mental health issues.... There was no offer of accommodation before I was sent off....I would have been alright if I had continued working but having to jump through hoops and advocate for myself with social services and employment insurance when I was at that point bet unwell....the Union just said get your doctor to send you back to work but remember they'll 'can you" of you don't fulfill the requirements of the job.....I have never fully recovered from that experience..... This was in CMHA HKPR out of Peterborough On..
. Again I probably could have fought this with the human rights commission but that requires time sand energy which at that point I didn't have sand ended up hospitalized....where I ran into fellow staff who were coming into to run groups.....I have never worked for an agency that discriminates against their employees because they may have mild depression......
What advice would you give the CEO of Canadian Mental Health Association about how to improve the company?
Considering our DIRECTOR was making over$170k a year and most workers made around 30-50k maximum it was so sad that at bargaining we had to give up stuff we had to get a 2% raise.... That puts a wedge between management and employees right at the get go...I would personally take less money as an ED to ensure good wages for my employees
