Conversations about mental health in the workplace have broadened in recent years, providing greater hope for those in need.

But actual tools to help spread the word are few and far between. That’s why Dalhousie University in Halifax was among 100 employers that signed up with Partners for Mental Health and its “Not Myself Today” campaign in 2013.

The initiative aims to tackle the stigma and misunderstandings around mental illness. It provides participating employers with an activity guide, tools and resources to start conversations in the workplace and organize workplace events and activities to promote a mentally healthy workplace.
