The Well Teacher Group is a free program that focuses on developing tools and skills related to improving teachers’ vitality and resiliency. This holistic approach to wellness will equip teachers to make lifestyle changes that will positively affect their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. All groups are virtual, confidential, and facilitated by trained health consultants who are located in communities across the province. Groups typically run weekly for six weeks after school or in the evening, and contain 10 to 15 participants.
The groups will focus on the following areas:
- Discussions on the challenges facing teachers in maintaining wellness and balance, and how to improve these areas both with goal setting and commitment to self.
- Discussions on physical health challenges facing teachers, including pain, fatigue, ergonomics, and voice.
- The opportunity for teachers to examine their own levels of burnout and mental health, and to utilize tools to assist with managing negative thinking.
- Development of an individual wellness plan, with goals specific to each participant, based on the information and strategies discussed throughout The Well Teacher Group.

A group will be offered in Local 22 (Vernon).
