Spectrum Therapeutics joins CMHA program
Medical cannabis company Spectrum Therapeutics has begun an educational initiative in collaboration with the Canadian Mental Health Association. The company will develop a collection of content related to cannabis in the workplace to be incorporated into the association’s “Not Myself Today” program, which deals with workplace mental health. The content, which will be released early next year, will include physical and digital materials intended to reduce the stigma attached to the use of cannabinoid-based medicines. Spectrum Therapeutics is a division of Canopy Growth.
“The stigma surrounding medical cannabis and mental illness prevents meaningful action and dialogue among those affected,” said Mark Ware, chief medical officer at Canopy Growth. “One of the goals of this partnership is to break that stigma by empowering conversations about mental health informed by evidence-based educational resources. For Spectrum Therapeutics, this partnership presents a powerful opportunity to improve lives by enhancing physical and mental health through access to education that sparks learning along with conversations about medical cannabis in the workplace.”
