UWindsor implements mental health days

November 18, 2020
The University of Windsor is implementing mental health days to help reduce the stress and pressure employees are facing in the midst of COVID-19. Full-time employees will be allowed two paid mental health days, essential services employees will be given shift rotations, and employees will be given February 16th to 18th as “meeting-free days” to allow them focused time to accomplish their work. “You have stepped forward with flexibility, resilience, and determination to support our students, deliver our programs, continue your work as researchers and innovators, and ensure that the important work that is done across the University of Windsor continues,” UWindsor president Robert Gordon wrote. “It is my hope that these measures can bring some relief to the stresses that you may be experiencing in your work and personal life.” UWindsor (ON)
