Every year the Canadian Mental Health Association encourages Canadians to focus on mental health – this year, the theme is empathy. When someone is struggling, they don’t always need someone to swoop in and fix things for them. First, they need someone to understand where they’re coming from. Empathy can help us know ourselves and our own feelings, as well as help us lead, communicate and support and connect with others.
What is Mental Health?
Understanding mental health can sometimes be a challenge. Join Miranda Massie (a member of UBC’s Workplace Wellbeing team) on a quick journey to learn more about mental health and boost your mental health literacy.
We want to highlight some of the resources for UBC faculty and staff as we focus on mental health this week.
