UBC Thrive Week October 29 – November 2, 2018:
Despite 1 in 5 Canadians experiencing a mental illness this year, stigma remains a huge barrier to people getting the help they need, especially in the workplace. It’s time we help make a change.
In support of the Canadian Mental Health Association, we at the Faculty of Education, will participate in the Not Myself Today® 2018 initiative. It aims to engage workplaces across Canada to support employees who are facing challenges, and create a safe and supportive workplace as it relates to mental health.
We all have a role to play in building a mentally healthier workplace, and our goal is to make sure you and your team members feel your best, as well as ensure that on the days you don’t, you have the means to seek the support you need. Not Myself Today provides information, tools and resources to raise awareness and understanding of mental health, reduce stigma and help build a psychologically safe and supportive working space.
