  • The purpose of this program is to provide stretching and strengthening exercises that can be completed at your desk, out on the job, or even at home. The program is broken up into six sections. Use that break-down to manage your exercise time and target areas you want to develop. Remember the key here is balancing strength and flexibility in the important muscle groups and for the whole body. CLICK HERE to download the program.

  • See how the senior leaders Stay Well at the U of L!

    We interviewed several senior leaders for their tips on fitting in physical activity, improving mental wellbeing, and managing workplace stress.

    See what they had to say!

  • How do YOU Stay Well at the U of L?  Do you have an interest you enjoy outside of work, something that helps stretch and maintain your physical and/or mental well-being?

    If so, we'd love to display it in our rotating 'Staying Well at the U of L' feature on our website.

    Take a photo of your talent, interest or yourself in action. You could display a quilt, or some wood-turning, a woven scarf, or a jar of jam. Use the online form to share your story and photo and we will display on a rotating basis on our website and other U of L wellness publications (monthly wellness newsletter, Wellness Facebook, Twitter).

  • Thank you to all who took the time to fill out the 2015 Employee Health & Wellness Survey. The goal was to capture trends, identify health and wellness programming and improve where possible. 574 employees (or 49.4%) responded and we have captured the results.

    The result are available HERE.

  • The University of Lethbridge Employee Assistance Program is a confidential resource provided to help faculty, staff and family members (who are enrolled in the benefits plans) enhance their personal and workplace functioning.

    Are EFAP appointments confidential? 

    Yes.  The EFAP carefully adheres to professional standards of ethics and confidentiality. Records maintained by the EFAP are not part of or accessible to any other University record system. Except for danger to self or others, child or elder abuse or neglect, or authorized legal access, no information is released without consent of the client. 

  • What does it cost to use the EFAP? 

    There is no cost to you for up to twelve, 1-hour long appointments with the EFAP. 

    My supervisor (or spouse/co-worker) wants me to come for counselling. Do I have to? 

    Use of the EFAP is voluntary. This said, if someone is suggesting the EFAP, they must be worried about you and it may be a good idea to talk with a professional. When you think about it, an hour with a trained professional who listens carefully to your concerns is a supportive event. 

    Is it true that most people who come to the EFAP have alcohol or substance abuse issues? 

    No, this is not true. Most people who use the EFAP come to discuss relationship issues or personal development. People also come for help with managing anxiety or for assistance in adjusting to a new community.
