The Kitchener office of Dillon Consulting Limited is celebrating the Canadian company’s 70th anniversary in a unique way. It is partnering with Canadian Mental Health Association Waterloo Wellington to raise awareness about the importance of positive mental health in this community.
During Mental Illness Awareness Week (Oct. 2-8) and throughout the month of October, Dillon will partner with the CMHA to:
- Offer an educational session to all employees about workplace mental health
- Use the #DillonCMHA to promote mental health on both organization’s social media channels
With over 600 employees across Canada, Dillion is replicating this local partnership with CMHAs across its 17 community offices across the country.
“Empowering local employees with information and education about mental health will have a positive impact on the community”, said Fred Wagner, Executive Director CMHA Waterloo Wellington. “By having positive discussions about mental health, Dillon employees are helping to break down stigma and discrimination making it easier to speak openly about this serious subject.”
Our 25 employees here in Waterloo Wellington are looking forward to working with the CMHA to help build community awareness about the important issue of mental health”, said Denis Viens, Associate and Office Manager of Dillon Consulting Limited in Kitchener. “As an employee owned Canadian company, we are proud to be a part of the community and we will always look for ways to lend our support for worthy organizations such as the CMHA.”
