May is Mental Health Awareness Month
“This past year presented so many different challenges and obstacles that tested our strength and resiliency. The global pandemic forced us to cope with situations we never even imagined, and a lot of us struggled with our mental health as a result. The good news is that there are tools and resources available that can support the well-being of individuals and communities.” (Mental Health America)
This Mental Health Awareness Month, UD Employee Health and Wellbeing is highlighting #Tools2Thrive – what individuals can do throughout their daily lives to prioritize mental health, build resiliency, and continue to cope with the obstacles of COVID-19. To learn more about other mental health resources available to you, please view our Mental Health Awareness Month resources and ComPsych Guidance resources below.
What is wellbeing?
Wellbeing starts with simple questions—What can I do today to feel fulfilled and balanced? Are you connected to purpose, people and your community? Do you have a balance between body, mind and spirit? Am I happy?
Wellbeing is unique to you and our goal is to bring awareness to where you are and what you need. Our department offers resources designed to support you in personal development to live your best life. We offer exciting opportunities to participate in throughout the year that support your wellbeing, connect you with your colleagues and the UD community and keep your health in focus.
“I can’t praise your office enough. The changes you have instituted over the past year, the offerings you provide us, and especially now in quarantine, you give me a bright spot and something to look forward to. I don’t always participate, and I don’t always participate FULLY when I do, but it really makes a difference. Feel good about your work!!”
