Project Brave: Mental Health and Wellbeing

Project Brave was designed to promote awareness and understanding of mental health within our Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Leamington studios, to show our support for the wellbeing of our team members to create a caring, inclusive culture of support. We chose the name Project Brave because we wanted to be brave and address this sensitive topic openly in our studios for the first time, the name and branding bring positive energy to the topic and attracted team members to join the discussions. We devised a strategy around four pillars: Safety: Ensuring the safety of our team members and introducing mental health first aiders. Awareness: Raising awareness of mental health through openly talking about it, forming the group and engaging with national initiatives such as World Mental Health Day. Prevention: training covering self-care, CALM app discount, books and resources for our studio libraries, a wellbeing allowance for gym and fitness activities Support: access to 24-hour confidential support across counselling, legal advice, financial advice and other practical information.

Takeaway:

  • Recognise the importance of mental health and the impact it can have in the workplace 
  • Understand how to engage staff on the topic
  • Develop a programme to successfully address mental health and wellbeing
