2017 Lunch & Learn Series

Welcome to the 2017 Lunch & Learn series where the objective is to provide a combination of education and development for all TRU Employees. Each month a new session and topic will be presented.

This Month’s session will be on:

Mental Health Awareness

Facilitators:

Jenny Gomes

Theron Reed

In support of workplace mental health, Thompson Rivers University will participate in the Not Myself Today® 2017program. This initiative, developed by the national charity Partners for Mental Health, aims to engage workplaces across Canada to support mental health and those who may be facing challenges.

The workplace can play a significant role in a person’s life and has an impact on overall health and wellness. Many Canadians are affected by mental health issues or mental illness either personally or through a friend or family member. Despite 1 in 5 Canadians having a mental illness this year, stigma remains a huge barrier to people getting the help they need. 

At Thompson Rivers University we want to ensure a healthy environment and help all employees perform at their best. Not Myself Today provides information, tools and resources to raise awareness and understanding of mental health, reduce stigma and help build a supportive work culture.

In this session we will:

Ø  Introduce the Not Myself Today® 2017program. This initiative, developed by the national charity Partners for Mental Health, aims to engage workplaces across Canada to support mental health and those who may be facing challenges

Ø  Discuss Mental Health and How it appears in the workplace

Ø  Watch a video on the Not Myself program

Ø  Complete a group Mental Health quiz

Ø  Discuss support and resources available for staff

 

Date:  September 27, 2017

Time:  12pm - 1pm

Location:  OL 127

 

Please feel free to bring your lunch with you for the session and as many questions as you might have.  Note that this session is not mandatory and participation is on your own time and unpaid.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
