Wellness Benefits in 5 Minutes - Did you know that you can create long-lasting positive change in your life in just 5 minutes? Consider the power of 5! 5 minutes of focused effort can build consistency in a new practice, spark confidence, and better efficiency when it comes to managing your time. Instead of stressing out about not having enough time to tend to your health and well-being during the holidays set aside just 5 minutes a day to move and meditate. Try some or all of the practices on the wellness graphic provided by our Health & Wellness team and let us know how you feel!

Adult Mental Health First Aid Training - Most of us would know how to help if we saw someone having a heart attack — we’d start CPR or call 9-1-1. But too few of us would know how to respond if we saw someone having a panic attack or showing signs of alcoholism. Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use challenge or crisis. A Mental Health First Aid course can help you help your family, peers, neighbors, colleagues, and friends. The Baltimore Washington Conference is sponsoring an Adult Mental Health First Aid training. The virtual training offered in February, March and April and is available at no cost to participants. Click here for registration details.
