NBCC values the physical and psychological wellbeing of its employees and students, and recognizes that mental health is of vital importance to the success of both.
Many people experience mental health challenges. In fact, statistics indicate that 1 in 5 Canadians will be directly affected by a mental health issue during their lifetime, but only 50% will seek help. It's important for all of us to learn more about mental illness and understand that, with the proper support, most individuals with a mental health concern can continue to lead healthy and productive lives.
As members of the NBCC community, each of us has a responsibility to care for ourselves and our colleagues and to create a nurturing environment where every employee and student feels supported by a culture of wellbeing.
