On the Montgomery County Prevention Coalition, we care about you and your mental wellness. Please see some self-care resources below that you can utilize to support yourself or others to increase resiliency and mental wellness. Remember: Self-Care is not selfish!
WHAT IS SELF - CARE?
"Self-care" is different for everyone. Hear from some of our Montgomery County Prevention Coalition members to learn what it means to them, and then learn more about the science behind mindfulness practices.

"This is what self-care means to me at this stage in my life. I believe that as I grow and evolve, the definition will do the same!"

"Self-Care is a place where being you is comfortable, at peace and whole. Where being YOU is enough!"
Ohio State University
"Self-care is spending time in nature and removing myself from the stresses of everyday life just to breathe, clear my head and refocus."
YWCA of Dayton
"Self-care increases your own inner peace and ability to relate to self and others in a healthy manner."
Ohio State University - Montgomery County Extension
"Self-care is mindfully taking a “gratitude” moment to remind myself of things for which I’m grateful."
Public Health Dayton & Montgomery County
"Self-Care is achieving a peaceful state of mind."
Montgomery County Educational Service Center
"Self-Care is taking care of my physical, social, spiritual and emotional self. It is talking to a best friend, walking, or sitting outside in the sun!"
Wright State University
"Self-care is the ability to refill and refuel oneself in healthy ways. It is maintaining a life that is rich with meaning and gratification outside the workplace."
