Supporting your health and wellness

Staff Wellness aims to promote, support and sustain the health and wellness of faculty and staff at the University of Calgary so they can perform at their best. This is accomplished by promoting practices to safeguard and optimize health, supporting employees at risk, maximizing function and aiding in recovery from occupational and non-occupational illness or injury.

Staff Wellness in collaboration with the SU Wellness Centre and WellBeing and WorkLife in HR, have put together a handout for faculty and staff on assisting a colleague in distress to help identify internal and external resources that are available to help, and enable them to make a good referral.

Faculty and staff are advised to take precautions regarding the recent cases of mumps that have been reported in some provinces across Canada.

The main symptom of mumps is painful swelling in the cheeks and neck. Symptoms can also include: fever; headache or earache; tiredness; sore muscles; dry mouth; trouble talking, chewing or swallowing; or loss of appetite.

If you experience swelling in your cheeks and neck, stay at home and contact Health Link available 24/7 by dialing 811. Mumps can be prevented through the mumps vaccine.
