Caring for your mental health and wellness is as important as caring for your physical health but do you think about how your physical health impacts your mental health and vice versa? The information in this section is intended to provide staff with education, suggestions for action, support and resources which promote and encourage a healthy lifestyle, a healthy workplace and physical and mental wellbeing.
Rotating shifts, being on your feet for extended periods or sitting at a desk all day, can all have an impact on health and wellness. Short periods of activity, stretch breaks and healthy food choices during your work day can have a positive impact on your physical and mental health no matter what shift you are working.
Below you will find information, suggestions and find PHC and Community resources all aimed at helping you meet your health and wellness goals.
