PHC was one of the early adopters of the Not Myself Today workplace mental health initiative created by the Canadian Mental Health Association. Not Myself Today aims to reduce stigma by bringing awareness and creating thoughtful conversations about mental h​ealth. Feeling “not myself today” is something we can all relate to during the pandemic, and perhaps even prior to.

Not Myself Today provides conversation starter prompts, mini lessons (5 minutes), an online portal with access to a library of resources, and more.

A limited number of accounts for the Not Myself Today online portal is available to PHC Staff. Visit and use access code WAJXEM to create an account. Note: if you previously registered in the past, you need to re-register for future access.

Not Myself Today posters are available for print as well as Zoom backgrounds to state your mood in that moment. It’s ok to feel “motivated” one minute, and “meh” the next (there are Zoom backgrounds for both!).

Are you passionate about leading a change in the way we think, and talk about mental health in the workplace? The PHC Wellness team is in search of a unit or department interested in being a flagship area for the Not Myself Today program.
