People are talking more openly about mental health these days—attitudes are shifting, awareness is growing—but the work we need to do to foster safe, supportive, and mentally healthy spaces is an ongoing effort. We all have mental health, and we don’t leave it at the door when we come to work. Like our physical health, our mental health needs to be taken care of, and since we are spending most of our waking hours at work, we must commit to making workplace mental health matter.
To support our UFV community Human Resources offers Not Myself Today®, an initiative of the Canadian Mental Health Association, to all employees. We encourage you to explore the resources, tools and activities that are available to each of you online 24/7.
The Not Myself Today program focuses on three main objectives:
building a greater awareness and understanding of mental health;
reducing stigma; and
fostering a safe and supportive work culture.

At the University of the Fraser Valley, we are excited to be at the forefront of organizations that are stepping up to make mental health our priority.
