So many companies and organizations are putting more emphasis on mental health, and breaking the stigma around it. ICBA’s Builders’ Circle partner, GreenShield Canada, is one of those leaders.

This week in Toronto, ICBA brought together our Mental Wellness Ambassador Corey Hirsch and Zahid Salman, the President and CEO of GreenShield; Carmen Hogan, VP GreenShield; Joe Blomeley, EVP of Greenshield; and Mike Gallardo, President of Merit Ontario – all to discuss mental health issues facing construction and other industries.

The leadership and commitment GreenShield is demonstrating by developing and delivering programs to support people and communities struggling with mental health challenges is very inspiring.

Together, we can save lives.

Each week, ICBA’s Jordan Bateman reflects on what we’ve learned as we participate in ICBA’s Workplace Wellness Program. ICBA’s Workplace Wellness Program is helping more than 100 companies and more than 10,000 construction professionals better understand mental health. This program is free for all ICBA members – check out for details.
