Wellness in the Community

Social wellness focuses on building supportive and caring social relationships and contributing to a healthy community. Good communication and interpersonal skills help us get along with others, deal with conflict and make good choices.

Cultural wellness also supports the diversity of our communities, striving to understand and appreciate differences and similarities among people. A strong, healthy community celebrates differences as factors that enrich the whole.

Community-based social and cultural wellness can include:

 

  • Learning effective communication skills to express feelings and communicate to others of different cultures
  • Developing and maintaining a network of family, friends and others for support
  • Budgeting time to incorporate social or fun activities with other obligations
