Taking Stock on Wellness
First aid kits are found in all workplaces and you better believe you’ll find them in schools, your gym, local grocery store and a lot of other spaces too. But what about attending to those injuries or ailments in our schools that are less visible? How might we respond to an injury related to one’s own mental health? Is there an onsite first-aid kit for that, and if so, what’s on the inventory list? Peggy, an ASEBP workplace wellness liaison, recently talked about creating just that—a mental health first aid kit! Find out what to put in your kit so that you and your teammates are even more ready to foster a safe and healthy school environment year round.
