Mental Well-Being and Resilience Learning Community Session 1:
Topic: Social Connectedness as the Center of Mental Well-being
What if the solution to some of our most critical healthcare issues could be found right here in the wisdom of lived experience from community members? Our connections with each other, the revitalization of community life, and building a culture of care is exactly how we will start to ease the suffering of our loneliness epidemic and the chronic diseases that ensue from loss and social isolation. NicBluCares, serving Nicollet and Blue Earth Counties, is piloting the global Compassionate Community movement for the USA. We are bringing primary care together with public health, multi-sector leaders, community expertise and a shared database system to connect people to services and build coalitions of support. Research tells us that social health is vital to physical, mental, and community wellbeing. Kami and Mary Ann present how a compassionate ‘whole of community’ movement in Southern Minnesota is creating a new culture where we belong and we take care of each other. Mankato/North Mankato will be the first Compassionate Town in America, creating a Compassionate Town Charter through conversations about belonging, equity, loss, and resiliency, harvesting the wisdom of lived experiences, and mobilizing best practices to policies.
