A brief description of the institution’s wellness and/or employee assistance program(s), including information to support each affirmative response above :
The WellCat Fit program is a program to help you improve your mental and physical wellbeing through a self-selected physical activity program. Taking the first step toward a physically active lifestyle can be an overwhelming experience, especially when attempted alone. We understand this, which is why we use an exercise buddy system. All exercise buddies or “peer mentors” are highly trained and knowledgeable in principles of physical activity and are flexible to meet the needs of your busy schedule. Unlike personal trainers, our peer mentors are not there to tell you what you should and should not do. They are there to support your choices and provide guidance when needed by being a reliable activity partner. Whether you enjoy walks through Bidwell Park, biking around Chico, or going to the WREC, your peer mentor will be there to support you in the ways you would like to be physically active.
The employee assistance program (EAP) is designed to provide professional assistance to state faculty, staff and their families (dependents and permanent household members) in assessing and resolving personal problems that may be affecting well-being or job performance.
