General mental health resources

There are many things you can do to make your mental health a priority. The first step is often better understanding the factors that contribute to overall mental health and those that make it more challenging for us to cope with challenges. The resources below are a good place to start.

The following resources are from both UBC and external organizations, and they address some of the most common questions people have about understanding and building their own mental health, where to find support (including counselling), and ways to talk about mental health issues in the workplace.

Getting support for mental health issues

There are many resources available to help you with the challenges you are facing. For example, through your UBC Benefit Plan, you have access to free and confidential counselling on a range of topics.

You might also be looking for support for a colleague, friend or family member who is struggling with various issues. Read more about helping staff and faculty in distress.  The UBC Reach Out page contains both UBC and external mental health resources for all campus audiences.
