Helping the the community Become Healthier Through Our Wellness Program

Mission

We promote health in the community across the life span by addressing the six elements of health:

  • educational
  • emotional
  • occupational
  • physical
  • social
  • spiritual

Educational

There are many theories as to why education will lead to better health behaviors. One reason might be that education raises the individual’s self-awareness, which enhances healthier lifestyles. Healthy individuals contribute to the overall health of the community and the nation in general.

Spiritual

Nondenominational experience, open-minded views, and respect for human life contribute to wellness and a healthy lifestyle.

Emotional_1

Emotional

Is this you? Do you feel you have gone too far in your head? Did the pandemic fuel suicide attempts among the community ? CDC says that one in four young adults struggle with suicide attempts and seven million adult Americans over the age of 65 experience depression. Suicide behavior in the elderly population, 65 and older, is a major public health issue.,

Occupational

The unemployment rate remains high in our community and millions report that households had to make serious decisions to buy food or pay for housing or help their college student with tuition. Do you need help with your resume, job interview skills, list of available jobs? 

Social_1

Social

Shape Up Fort Bend promotes health in the community via many avenues: yoga, biking, dragon boat races, parades, Zumba, walking in the mall, meeting with senior citizens in the nursing home, independent living, schools, and partnering with local businesses.
