The Healthy Workplace Initiatives Program (HWIP) provides funding support for UBC departments and units that promote wellbeing in the workplace. In October, additional funds were secured and are currently available for a special one-time round of HWIP funding specific to mental health initiatives.
Your department or unit can apply for up to a maximum of $3,000. Funds received should support training that provides key information and tools for understanding mental health issues, increasing mental health literacy, reducing stigma or building individual resilience skills.
If you are interested in bringing mental health training or education programs to your department or unit, please apply by Dec. 1, 2017 – this Friday! For more information, visit the HWIP webpage.
