About Wellness Council

Wellness Council LogoMission

Our mission is to create a forum in which Council Members may share ideas, examine issues or concerns and discuss current topics relating to the effective mitigation of Wellness Council issues and customer support. The Wellness Council will work in conjunction with programs for wellness, promoting awareness, and “holistic wellness.” Members will provide input and suggestions to Command; Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR); Health and Safety and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) on possible programs and activities.

Vision

Wellness is much more than simply the absence of sickness. It is optimal physical, mental, and emotional well-being, a preventative way of living that reduces-sometimes even eliminates-the need for remedies. Wellness emphasizes personal responsibility for making the life-style choices and self-care decisions that will improve the quality of your life.

  • Increased awareness

  • Recommending new opportunities
  • Reach people where they are
  • Support DLA Wellness Initiative
  • Make health and wellness part of the workplace culture
  • Motivate employees
  • Keep employees informed of wellness events
  • Have fun!!
