May is Mental Health Month, with a theme of “Live Your Life Well” – a national public education campaign dedicated to helping people better cope with stress and enhancing their well-being. Part of this campaign is the Live Your Life Well website that offers 10 research-based tools and ways to apply them in everyday life. From relaxation techniques to journaling exercises to simple ways to get better sleep and improve eating habits, the materials offer a wide range of resources to build resiliency and well-being – some good resources for your wellness programs. These resources are all made available by Mental Health America, formerly known as the National Mental Health Association.
May 2-8 is North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week 2010, sponsored by the American Society of Safety Engineers. Mission 2010 is safe workplaces, the importance of which has been tragically highlighted this year with the loss of 29 workers in the West Virginia Massey mine disaster, 7 workers Tesoro refinery explosion in Washington, 6 workers killed at the Kleen Energy Plant in Connecticut, and 11 workers missing and presumed dead from Transocean’s oil rig explosion off the coast of Louisiana. Learn more about NAOSH Week and activities to support safety in the workplace, in schools, and in the community.
