“The ideas and views of Islanders are integral to creating a provincial wellness strategy that encourages and supports each of us to lead physically and mentally healthier lives,” said Health Minister Doug Currie.
“This will not only help Islanders improve and enjoy their own health but also build healthier communities.”
The Department of Health and Wellness discussion paper, "Towards a Culture of Wellness," and the survey, focus on five areas: positive mental wellness, being active, living tobacco free, eating well, and using alcohol responsibly.
The survey asks Islanders to give their thoughts on the proposed ideas in the discussion paper, and asks what they think government can do to help them lead healthier lives.
