DMCS 785 – Capstone Course – Effective Workplace Responses to Mental Health

Prerequisite: To enroll in this course, one must have completed: DMCS 750, DMCS 755, DMCS 760, DMCS 765, DMCS 770, DMCS 775, and DMCS 780.

The Capstone Course provides participants with an opportunity to review the concepts presented in previous courses in this program and to identify the priorities for their own workplaces. While the need for leadership and innovation by workplace leaders in this area has always been integral to workplace wellness, the current realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, substance use escalation and marked societal increases in mental illness, underscore the responsibilities of professionals who are involved in disability management. The Capstone Course is designed to assist participants in building a foundation of skills and knowledge related to mental health within their organizations. It provides an opportunity to develop a strategic knowledge transfer plan appropriate to the needs of their organization. Practice in supporting and justifying research processes and viewpoints will also be inherent within the activities.
