Building and maintaining our mental health is a year-round pursuit, and Thrive is one of many mental health initiatives at UBC. Each year, when we work together as partners in promoting mental health literacy, everyone can thrive and enhance the capacity within each of us to feel motivated, enjoy life and be ready to take on life’s challenges.
This year, Thrive takes place from Oct. 29 – Nov. 2. We encourage all departments, units and faculties to consider becoming a Thrive partner. You can help expand positive mental health among UBC faculty, staff and students by planning an event, promoting Thrive Week, or getting people talking in support of mental health. Explore your path with the “Thrive 5” and find out the many more ways you can engage with Thrive.
As part of Thrive 2018, 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 fourth consecutive year participating in NMT. Consider joining our community of Not Myself Today partners to champion this initiative within numerous UBC workplaces during Thrive Week. By registering as a partner, you will receive access to toolkits and resources that you can use to inspire positive mental health in your workplace and among your colleagues. Visit www.hr.ubc.ca/nmt to learn more about this year’s Not Myself Today initiative and to register your department, unit or faculty.
