UBC believes that by working together to promote mental health literacy, everyone can thrive and feel motivated, enjoy life and be ready to take on challenges. That’s why the university organizes Thrive, a series of events focused on helping the community to explore their path to mental health.
Save the date: November 1-30
This year, in honour of its 10th anniversary, Thrive will be a month-long initiative and we encourage all UBC departments, units and faculties to consider being a Thrive partner. You can help expand mental health literacy and action among UBC faculty, staff and students by planning an event, promoting Thrive in November, or engaging people in conversations in support of mental health.
Not Myself Today
As part of Thrive 2019, UBC departments, unit and faculties are also invited to participate in the Not Myself Today (NMT) initiative.
NMT is an evidence-informed workplace mental health initiative that helps to build greater awareness, reduce stigma and foster safe and supportive cultures. This is UBC’s fifth consecutive year participating in NMT, and it’s an excellent way to get involved with Thrive.
Consider joining our community of partners to champion this initiative within UBC workplaces during Thrive. By registering as a partner, you will receive access to toolkits and resources that you can use to inspire understanding and action for better workplace mental health.
Visit the Not Myself Today page to learn more or to register your department, unit or faculty.
