Brunswick Church Health and Wellbeing Session

Brunswick Church Health and Wellbeing Session

Health talk about 5 Ways to Wellbeing.

Benefit of health promotion

Health promotion supports personal and social development and enables people to take more control over their own health. Providing information and screening are some examples of health promotion. Giving people access to relevant and accurate health information puts them in a better position to make healthier choices for prevention and self-management of conditions. Qualitative data shows that opportunistic and community-based screening opportunities can reach people who would not have accessed screening otherwise.
