Elgin St. Thomas Public Health – Take Care of Your Selfie

Elgin St. Thomas Public Health (ESTPH) works together with their communities to promote wellness, protect health, prevent injury, and advocate for positive change of people who live, work, and play in Elgin County. ESTPH provides educational resources on a variety of topics while informing about public health programs and services.

This initiative was developed to complement Mental Health Week and other curriculum resources which target youth and address mental health, physical activity, and healthy eating. Through the use of a designated hashtag, students were encouraged to share their experiences and connect with community support groups to reduce barriers.
