Interprofessional Practice and Learning has partnered with the Atlantic Institute for Resilience (AIR) to offer a resilience series. The series includes access to two courses through the AIR campus, with the goal of educating participants on resilience and integrating concepts learned into supporting teams.

The aim of this wellness project is to introduce a positive, evidence-based framework to mental and behavioural health and resilience and stimulate a cultural shift that empowers individuals and teams within Nova Scotia Health.

The most effective wellness strategies address both the individual and the workplace environment. Individuals should have an interest in joining and investing in themselves and staff wellness and fostering healthy workplace environments for all, in keeping with established guidelines and best practices. 


  • 30 participants will be selected through an expression of interest for the pilot
  • Open to all Nova Scotia Health employees across all zones
  • Learners must be supported by their immediate manager/director to have the necessary protected time for these courses
