For the HR community of practice
In our last HR Studio on Nov. 4, several attendees requested more information on how they can support faculty with their mental health. We have a list of resources compiled by Miranda Massie, HR Health Promotion Coordinator. Please share this with your faculty and with staff who support faculty.
If you would like to schedule a session in your unit to learn more about mental health resources for faculty, please contact Miranda Massie.
If you or your faculty are concerned about a student’s wellbeing, you can use the Early Alert system. You can also assist a student who is in distress. If you have immediate safety concerns for yourself or others, call 911, then call Campus Security at 604-822-2222.
