UCalgary Nursing Mental Health & Wellness Initiative


At the Faculty of Nursing, we care for each other by building psychological health and safety among ourselves and among people we serve.


To create a culture within the Faculty of Nursing that honours not just our academic and professional excellence, but also our personal wellness.


We are anchored and guided by the values outlined in the Faculty of Nursing Strategic Plan "Leading the Pursuit of Nursing Excellence" and the guiding principles of the University of Calgary Campus Mental Health Strategy: Creating a Community of Caring to achieve and sustain mental health and wellness at the Faculty of Nursing.

Flourishing together in a caring community

The Faculty of Nursing is a caring community that prioritizes mental health and well-being for all -- where learning and work environments support mutual respect and personal wellness within the pursuit of academic and professional excellence.

In December 2018, we formally adopted the University of Calgary Campus Mental Health Strategy: Creating a Community of Caring.

With this adoption, we are moving forward to commit to developing an emotionally safe and caring learning and working environment where Faculty of Nursing students, staff and faculty thrive.
