Each Centre or team has one or more representatives that are Staff Wellbeing Champions.
A Staff Wellbeing Champion's main focus is to arrange and oversee both optional and whole service activities, routines and procedures for staff which promote the 5 Ways to Wellbeing:
· Connect with others
· Be physically active
· Take notice
· Keep Learning
They also facilitate discussion and cascade information between SLT and staff respectively via staff meetings, forums and in house CPD sessions.
The Staff Wellbeing Champions meet regularly to share staff ideas and facilitate new initiatives across the service.
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Positive mental health is about feeling good and being able to cope.
Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Physical health can be managed through regular fitness activities that suit the individual. This in turn, often has an impact on how individuals cope in their day to day life.
Sexual health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships.
Social health involves your ability to form satisfying, interpersonal relationships with others. It also relates to your ability to adapt comfortably to different social situations and act appropriately in a variety of settings.
Spiritual health is an important component of an individual’s wellbeing and an integral aspect of the holistic health philosophy.
Physical, mental and spiritual health are deeply intertwined and have a profound effect on one another.
There is no real definition to spirituality, because it has a different meaning to different people. It is not about a particular religion. It is an acknowledgement of there being more to life than our five senses tell us; an acknowledgement that we are spiritual beings in a physical body; an acknowledgement that there is a greater being – whatever name or ‘label’ it is given.
