Health Is Vital
Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

**E-training: Cultural Diversity
Working in county with people from all over the world it is important to have respect for people from all cultures. I like one of the standards suggested, remember that people are individuals even inside their culture. Other suggestions include showing respect for all people, know how your own culture influences you, be sensitive to the culture of others, provide services in a native language or through interpreter if necessary. Culture includes customs, language, religion, ethnicity, heritage and community.
