Orthopedic Clinic Reminds Coworkers About Importance of Mental Health

The Hot Springs Orthopedic Clinic marked Mental Health Month in May by handing out goody bags for employees in the Orthopedic and Endocrinology clinics.

The onset of COVID-19 and the need to social distance has brought a host of issues that can effect our mental well-being. It’s especially important now to remember to take steps to preserve our mental health.

During the month of May, Emily Vinyard, Registered Medical Assistant in the Orthopedic Clinic, placed flyers with mental illness facts around the office and created goody bags.

Each bag contained the following:

  • Stress ball
  • Sleep mask
  • Sleep technique card
  • Inspirational cards
  • Brochure for the Employee Assistant Program
  • Stretches to relieve stress
  • Pamphlet for a local licensed clinical social worker
