Next week, Dal will launch Dal Thrive, a university-wide mental wellness initiative aimed to promote a positive mental health environment for all faculty, staff and students. Dal Thrive will help create awareness about mental health, reduce stigma and improve access to mental health supports.
Dal Thrive was developed in response to a recommendation outlined in the Strategic Initiative 5.2 focusing on Diversity and Inclusiveness and the results of the 2015 Quality of Work Life Survey of faculty and staff that indicated a need for more campus mental health resources, supports and services.
On March 14, dal.ca/Thrive website will go live, which will be the home for the university’s mental health resources, supports and services. If you are on Twitter, we encourage you to retweet and follow @workatdal, as well as tweet about Dal’s mental wellness initiative using the hashtag #DalThrive.
