Please note there are simple steps everyone can take to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses like COVID-19.  There are links that are provided for easy access regarding COVID-19 and on handwashing.

  • Wash hands often for 20 seconds and encourage others to do the same.
  • If no soap and water are available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue away.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Disinfect surfaces, buttons, handles, knobs, and other places touched often.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

DSHS also recommends that you start practicing social distancing. Social distancing involves staying away from other people to avoid catching or spreading illness. It’s a fancy term for avoiding crowds and minimizing physical contact. This could mean avoiding concerts or weddings, skipping the handshake, and/or staying at least six feet away from others.

Emotional Wellbeing!
Emotional health is synonymous with wellbeing.  It is vital to living a life of wholeness, balance and contentment.  An emotional health definition is one that includes resilience - getting up when life knocks you down.  Rather than living a problem free-life, emotional health means that one can bounce back from set back and thrive despite problems.
 
Drug Awareness! Know the Facts!  Be in Control of Your Body!
Drug abuse awareness is an understanding of:
- what exactly substance abuse is
- what substance abuse does and what the risks are
- how substance abuse can lead to the development of an addiction
- what kinds of consequences addiction can have both physically and mentally
