Mental health: Tools and resources for managers, heads and deans

Many of us are adjusting to changes in our work, uncertainty, and disruptions to our personal lives. As we navigate these unprecedented times, it is important to consider ways to support mental health and resilience. 

What can managers and supervisors do to support faculty and staff wellbeing during COVID-19?

    General mental health resources​

    As a supervisor, you play an important role in creating a positive and healthy work environment for your staff.

    The resources below are from both UBC and external organizations, and they address some of the most common questions managers have about:

    • Mental health education and information, including counselling and on-campus resources for staff and faculty
    • Mental health issues in the workplace, including where to find coaching support
    • Tips on creating a healthy work environment

      Mental health issues in the workplace

      The UBC Reach Out page contains both UBC and external mental health resources for all campus audiences.

      Creating a healthy work environment

      We encourage you to contact us directly if you are seeking specific training to help you address mental health issues with your staff or faculty.  Remember: You do not need to be an expert to help someone in need.
