How to use the interactive health map.

Welcome! Be Well in the South Georgian Bay Community!

Together to help revolutionize the way health happens in our community we must captivate and empower all community members to ensure the BeWell 10-5-2-1-0 consistent messaging is seen in all areas in the surrounding communities. In addition we must ensure there is an awareness regarding mental health, positive parenting, and money’s effects on health. Together with a common goal we can help children and families adopt healthy behaviours everywhere, everyday.

The BeWell Community developed a map of South Georgian Bay housed with many ideas, resources, and lessons that can be used to take actionable steps towards health. Depending on the area in your community that you feel ready to make change you can easily access suggestions by clicking on that location to help you advocate and adopt the different healthy habits for children and families.

Remember it takes a community to raise healthier children for a healthier tomorrow. We are all here to help each other!
