Not Myself Today® has helped dozens of companies and organizations of all sizes and from all industries across Canada to build mentally healthier workplaces.
Now, the European Brain Council, in partnership with the founders of the campaign, Partners for Mental Health, want to bring the initiative to Europe and work for the same achievements here.
Exactly like the Canadian campaign, we offer proven, practical ways to get employees talking about mental illness and learning how to support those affected by it, adapted for the European workplace.
We aim to have the campaign available in as many European languages possible in the near future, and continue to be open to collaboration with organizations willing to champion the vital work in mental health within the workplace.
