Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire work to improve mental health

The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empire are partnering with Well-Being Connections to tackle well-being among children, families and staff.

This partnership will give the clubs the ability to support the continued needs of children through a staff approach, according to a press release.

“Well-being is a way of living that cultivates a positive mindset, a sense of purpose, and resiliency to reach optimal functioning,” Casey Johnston, coach at Well-Being Connections, said in a statement. “Investing in people’s well-being, as a part of their professional development, creates a more positive environment for individuals of all ages within the organization.”

Over the past year, Boys & Girls Club has provided staff with a tiered approach to well-being training throughout the entire organization, focusing on providing the tools staff need for stress reduction, healthy communication and a fulfilling work-life balance.
