The Plymouth Active 10 Walking Challenge 

Are you and your colleagues taking part in this years challenge? If so we would love to hear from you and see how you are getting on.
We’d love to see your teams pictures of you getting active and racking up the minutes. You can always share them with us on social media @oneyouplymouth and @wellbeing_work using #Active10WalkingChallenge

The challenge started yesterday on 10th September but you can still sign up to take part and there is plenty of time to catch up with our current joint leaders Wolferstans and DWP.

Sugar Smart September

The SUGAR SMART team often hears from individuals concerned about how much sugar they or their children consume.  However it can be so hard to cut down on added sugar, as it is often hidden in foods without us realising, and sugary products are marketed and promoted to us in a way that means we find them very hard to resist.

If this sounds familiar, join us for SUGAR SMART September!  We are encouraging people to be smart about their food choices and try to reduce the amount of free sugar eaten during September.

We have had a fantastic response to the launch of our new SuicideTALK session that we launched in the last newsletter and have a number of sessions planned with organisations in the next few months. For anyone that might have missed it the details of this session are below.

suicideTALK is an introductory program that teaches about suicide and how you can make a difference in your community or within your organisation.

The Wellbeing Team are now offering this FREE 90 minute session to businesses and organisations, ideal for team meetings or as a bite size session.

suicideTALK…
• Examines why people experience thoughts of suicide
• Encourages open discussion about suicide and attitudes toward it
• Explores ways people can help to prevent suicide

“Should we talk about suicide?” By looking at this question in a number of different ways, session members can discover some of the beliefs and ideas about suicide in their communities and in themselves.

suicideTALK participants learn…
•    How suicide is a serious community health problem that is often misunderstood
•    How personal and community beliefs about suicide affect suicide stigma and safety
•    How the steps taught in LivingWorks’ safeTALK program can be used to help prevent suicide
•    How to get involved in life protection, preservation, and promotion activities in the community
