Twenty per cent of Canadians experienced increased workplace conflict or aggression
LifeWorks, a leading provider of digital and in-person total wellbeing solutions, today released its monthly Mental Health Index™ that showed the 20 per cent of Canadians that have experienced increased conflict and/or aggression at work have a mental health score more than 10 points below the national average. Additionally, 34 per cent of Canadians indicate their organization does not provide training, coaching or support to help deal with workplace conflict and/or aggression.
The Index found that Canadian workers are still under strain with an unfavourable mental health score.

About the Mental Health Index™
Beginning in May 2022, corresponding to the third year of the Mental Health Index™ by LifeWorks, scores are represented as absolute. To create the Mental Health Index™, a response scoring system is applied to turn individual responses into point values. Higher point values are associated with better mental health and less mental health risk. Scores between 0 to 49 correspond with distress levels, scores between 50 to 79 correspond with strain levels and scores between 80 to 100 correspond with optimal levels.
