2017 Robert J. Wood Culture of Health Award Winner

Algoma, Wisconsin Honored As 2017 RWJF Culture of Health Prize Winner

Now in its fifth year, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize recognizes communities that have placed a priority on health and are creating powerful partnerships and deep commitments that will enable everyone, especially those facing the greatest barriers to good health, the opportunity to live well.

A Culture of Health recognizes that health and well-being are greatly influenced by where we live, learn, work, and play; the safety of our surroundings; and the relationships we have in our families and communities. The Prize elevates the compelling stories of local leaders and community members who together are transforming neighborhoods, schools, businesses, and more—so that better health flourishes everywhere.

Under the umbrella of the Live Algoma initiative, Algoma, WI became a 2017 recipient of the Culture of Health prize, being recognized as a community that has come together to set goals and work as teams on health and wellness issues.  Anyone can be a “bright spot,” an agent of change who plays a role in improving health!

Monthly Feature Article: May Is Mental Health Month

May Is Mental Health Month!
Why is it so important to discuss things like mental health? These reasons below indicate that it’s time to bring mental health to the forefront of our conversations and efforts to decrease the stigma around mental health issues: -One in four adults – approximately 26% — is living with some form of mental illness. (That means it is likely that you or someone you know is dealing with an aspect of their emotional wellbeing.)

    • The most common mental health conditions for adults are anxiety disorders and depression.
    • Depression is the leading cause of disability in the world.
    • Making it okay to TALK ABOUT mental health makes people feel empowered to seek help and TREAT mental health. You can save a life by showing you care.
      1. Ask “are you okay?”
      2. Listen and ensure their safety
      3. Connect to resources, such as your workplace Employee Assistance Program or community resources. If you think they need immediate assistance, encourage them to text “HOPELINE” to 741741 or call 1-800-273-8255.
      4. Follow up by asking “are you okay?” again later.

If you need a place to start your own discussion, please feel free to reach out to me, your Community Nurse Activator or your Primary Care Provider for help in figuring out your next steps.

To schedule an appointment, call 24/7 Nurse On Call at 1-800-528- 7883. Appointments are available at the Wellness Center on Thursdays from 11-1 pm and at the Bellin Algoma Clinic on Tuesdays from 8-11 am. One conversation could save your life! All visits are confidential. Show you care by participating in any of the supportive mental health activities this May, throughout the Community of Algoma! Invite a friend to join you!
Best of Health,
Nurse Jody
