Narratives around work and mental health

In late 2019, just before the start of the pandemic, Scott Schieman embarked on a long term study of Canadian workers looking for insight into the interplay between people’s work and well being.

Schieman is a professor of sociology at the University of Toronto and the Canada research chair in the social constructs of health.

He joined People First Radio to speak about what his data can tell us about the narratives that have surrounded work and mental health in the last few years.
