UBC recognizes the key role that positive mental health plays in the workplace, as well as its impact on professional performance, productivity and respectful environments. Mental health problems can be as disabling as physical health conditions, and are sometimes harder to heal. Our programs and training programs are aimed at increasing mental health literacy and decreasing stigma. We are working to provide UBC staff and faculty with tools and resources to improve mental health, resiliency and coping skills.
Upcoming Mental Health Workshops
Self-Care 101: June 22

Understanding Mental Health Challenges: July 27
Understanding mental health challenges can be difficult and knowing how to interact with someone who might be in a mental health crisis can be even more challenging. The goal of this session is to increase mental health literacy while providing tools and skills to respond effectively in a caring and respectful way. Participants will learn skills and knowledge to help better manage mental health problems in themselves, a family member, a friend or a colleague. Find out more and register now.
