What is community wellness?
Wellness is not just about what each of us does as individuals. It is also about how we affect each other, and the impact that we can have together on the health of our community.
A healthy community is more than a group of healthy individuals. We know that tragedy can strike at any time, and in communities as small as ours, everyone can be affected.
Community wellness is about the ability and willingness of people to act together – in good times, and in bad – in ways which benefit everyone.
Healthy communities are built on the relationships that we nurture and the efforts that we make to work through the problems we encounter along the way. It is also about celebrating our successes as a community.
Yukoners and Yukon communities have a strong tradition of working together to care for each other and make our communities better places to live, work, learn and grow old.
