Revamped Healthy UNH Wellness Resource Guide Has More to Give

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Maybe you want to quit smoking, or would like a little help figuring out how to best manage your money. Or, maybe you’re looking to have some fun. You can find information on all three and more with the online Wellness Resource Guide, sponsored by Healthy UNH.

It’s easy to find what you’re looking for; you can search by the more than 150 program names, by topic, department, or participant (faculty, staff, community member, i.e.).

Topics include financial wellness, fitness, health education, health screening, holistic care, medical services, mental health, nutrition, sexual health, tobacco cessation, and general wellness.

New this year is the addition of information on how to access services once you find the program you’re looking for. Take health education; entering that into the search field will bring up a list of options, such as American Red Cross classes, bullying education, and ergonomics. Under the description for each is the access information—who to call for an ergonomics assessment, for example, or how to learn more about bullying resources.  

Telephone numbers and websites are listed right there with the access info.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, or want to have a resource added, just contact Healthy UNH for assistance.

Healthy UNH is a campus-wide initiative that encourages faculty, staff, and students to improve their health while simultaneously decreasing health care costs. Its goal is to make UNH the healthiest campus community in the country by 2020.

Healthy UNH has identified major health issues that need to be addressed, including rising rates of chronic disease; the need for better information about resources to promote health; evidence of increasing rates of stress, anxiety, and other mental health issues; and spiraling health care costs.
