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.

Mental Health Week

May 1-7 is  the Canadian Mental Health Association's 66th annual Mental Health Week.  No one can be truly healthy without mental health. It involves how we feel, think, act and interact with the world around us. Mental health is about coping with the stresses of life and contributing to our community. Ask for help or seek advice from someone with expertise—give your mental health the attention it needs and deserves.  

Homewood Health, the university's Employee and Family Assistance Plan provider, offers professional confidential counselling to faculty, staff and their eligible dependents 24 hours a day, seven days a week at no cost.
