Mental health is a significant issue: one in five Canadians will have a mental health problem or illness this year. While conversations about mental health are now happening more frequently, many people are reluctant to talk about mental health at work, with four in 10 Canadian workers saying they would likely ignore or hide a mental illness diagnosis.
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 strive to provide the UBC staff and faculty community with tools and resources to improve mental health, resiliency and coping skills.
