The WellBeing and WorkLife portfolio aims to empower all faculty and staff to achieve a high level of wellbeing and optimal functioning regardless of their health status.

The purpose of this website is to provide University of Calgary faculty and staff with a central repository of readily available information about the worklife and wellness services and resources available across the campus as well as in the greater Calgary community.

On this site, faculty and staff will find tools and resources to help them proactively manage their work and personal lives as well as help address emerging health and wellness concerns.

Homewood Health Supplemental Feature  

Reducing Mental Health Stigma/Réduire la Stigmatisation Entourant les Problèmes de Santé Mentale

Regardless of age, culture or income, at least one in five Canadians will experience a mental health disorder in their lifetime.  According to the World Health Organization, health is “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Yet so many people define good health as being physically well. Our mental health is equally important and often does not receive the attention it should.  This feature explores what mental health disorders are, common myths and stigmas, and ways to reduce stigma.

Life Lines May Newsletter: Youth, Teens and Mental Health

It’s no secret the emotions and actions of youth and teenagers can be a dizzying array of ups, downs, quirks and contradictions, which have been accepted as a normal part of growing up.  However, there are notable instances when shifts in mood and behaviour may be indicators of a larger, more daunting issue: mental illness.
