The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Ontario Division is seeking proposals from qualified individuals/organizations to carry out a complete curriculum evaluation and redesign process for the Mental Health Works program.
Mental Health Works (MHW) is a national social enterprise of CMHA Ontario. It provides capacity-building workshops on workplace mental health to both employers and employees based on the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. Our approach is person-centred, evidence-based, and solutions-focused. The program is currently operating nationally and is available in both official languages.
Project Goals and Scope
Currently, the MHW program has 13 modules, and we are seeking support to revise the existing content and simultaneously develop six additional modules. The vision is for these 19 modules to have the flexibility to be delivered both online and in-person. Modules are designed to be delivered as individual 1-hour sessions, or a customized half day (3-hour) / full day (6-hour) workshop which combines individual modules into a package that meets client needs/interests.
The selected consultant will evaluate the entirety of MHW’s current curriculum in order to align all components to modern workplace trends, mental health best practices, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility (EDIA) best practices, and the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety (“the Standard”). This evaluation will inform the consultant’s redesign of the MHW curriculum, including production of all program materials, to ensure ease of delivery, accuracy of information, and overall effectiveness and impact of the program going forward.
