Survey on Mental Health Issues

The Healthy Professional Worker Partnership, an interdisciplinary, multi-university research team led by the University of Ottawa, is exploring factors that contribute to knowledge workers taking leaves from work for mental health issues (their own or a family member’s) and to explore tools that support their successful return to work. This study includes: academia, accounting, dentistry, medicine, midwifery nursing and teaching professions. The team is particularly interested in the role that gender has on these experiences. There will also be some questions about how COVID-19 has impacted these experiences.
