Promoting mental health literacy, reducing stigma, creating a supportive campus culture, and ensuring that faculty, staff and students have the resources to help them understand mental health issues, and improve coping skills, are key to building mental health and to living, learning, and working well—this is what Thrive is all about! 

Thrive is a mindset and (this year) a month-long series of events focused on helping everyone at UBC explore their path to mental health. What started at UBC as a conversation between colleagues about the importance of reducing stigma associated with mental health, has since grown into a movement celebrated at numerous campuses across Canada, providing opportunities for important conversations about mental health to take place. 


Let's Thrive UBC! 

This November, we’re celebrating 10 years of Thrive at UBC, with a month of events and initiatives focused on building mental health through the Thrive 5.  Whatever your path to mental health may look like, we hope you’ll join us in creating a campus culture where we can talk openly about mental health, feel empowered to explore ways to foster it, and support one another in doing so as well.
