The NC Alliance of YMCAs is teaming up with partners to host a Slow Twitter Chat from May 23-27 on opportunities for enhancing staff well-being. Join the Alliance, the NC Healthy School Section in the Division of Academic Standards at NC Department of Instruction and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation as we celebrate Employee Health and Fitness Month.
We will post a question on Twitter at noon each day that week to bring attention to the need for open discussion about how organizations can best support their employees’ physical and mental health. We know this is more important than ever as the pandemic continues.
Follow us on Twitter @NCYMCAAlliance and join the discussion at your convenience! We invite our HR and other leaders, as well as all employees, to join the discussion. Use #NCWellnessAtWork when you post.
May is also Mental Health Awareness Month. YUSA has a PR Toolkit for Ys to raise awareness, educate and highlight the Y’s role in supporting mental health through community care. Just as importantly, take time to care for yourself now and throughout May! YUSA’s Mental Health Thought Leader Cohort and Innovation Team will post self-care practices during May regularly; you can access them on LINK here.
