[SPOTLIGHT] New York School District Prioritizes Self-Care with WellVille Staff Wellness Center

 

Welcome to “WellVille", a wellness center for district staff in Long Island, New York. In this episode of the GW Spotlight, Debbi Rakowsky, school social worker in the Three Village School District, shares her insights about creating a space for educators to pause, connect, and shift from a culture of burnout to balance. In this video, you will learn:

  • How WellVille got started
  • A typical school day in WellVille (virtual + in-person)
  • Equipment for the staff wellness center
  • How WellVille provides free counseling + workshops for staff
  • A creative way to get your walking steps in throughout the school day
  • Ideas for staff check-ins and support
  • How to get funding for your staff wellness center
  • The #1 thing you need to start your own staff wellness center

With compassion fatigue, anxiety, and depression on the rise, we must shift the paradigm of self-care is a luxury to self-care is a priority. As you will see from watching this video, Debbi shows us that this shift doesn't take much time, but creates a massive positive impact. Thank you for your dedication to staff wellness, Debbi! You are a true Wellness Warrior!
