UBC launches Activate Wellbeing Toolkit to promote mental health and wellbeing

UBC is excited to announce the launch of the Activate Wellbeing Toolkit, a new online resource designed to help strengthen the health and wellbeing of teams across UBC, with an emphasis on workplace settings. 


The Activate Wellbeing Toolkit (AWT) was developed in collaboration with Health, Wellbeing and Benefits (UBC Vancouver), Workplace Health and Wellbeing (UBC Okanagan), and the Office of Wellbeing Strategy. The Toolkit is designed to help staff and faculty identify actionable and measurable steps to integrate health and wellbeing into their teams, contributing to healthier work and learning environments. 

The Activate Wellbeing Toolkit is now available

The user-friendly digital Toolkit provides a structured 5-step process and practical resources and supports to help staff and faculty recognize the positive actions their team is already taking, as well as identify new ways to implement action and measure success.
