I am delighted to introduce the Health and Wellbeing Week Brochure and I would like to acknowledge and thank all participating agencies and organisations throughout the County.
I encourage everyone to get involved in the planned activities and to help make Health and Wellbeing Week 2015 a success.
This is a great opportunity for young and old to participate in a range of activities and events which encourage Health and Wellbeing.
Chief Executive's Message We believe that Health and Wellbeing Week is a great opportunity for South Dublin County Council and its partner agencies to raise awareness of the many services and facilities available to our citizens aimed at improved health. Last year there were over forty events organised for Health and Wellbeing Week and approximately 8,500 people participated. A number of workshops that were delivered as part of the week are still ongoing including horticultural therapy and sports programmes. The slogan for the week is "Get your ass off the Couch". The week is supported by Health and Wellbeing "Ambassadors" which include well known sports people, politicians and TV Celebrities.
The Health and Wellbeing of our population is a measure of our success as a society. As a local authority we influence physical and mental wellbeing through social inclusion events, as lead agency in of interagency initiatives, recreation activities, library services, employment creation, housing supply, community infrastructure and financial supports. South Dublin County Council is very conscious of its role in this regard and continues to promote the well being of our citizens as a priority objective of service delivery.
The Healthy Ireland Framework 2013-2025 states "The impact of positive social interaction cannot be underestimated. Social Interaction and supporting social connectedness and involvement in community life are a keystone to empowering people at the individual level and building strong communities for health and wellbeing." This week will give people at risk of exclusion opportunities to get out and get involved in activities and develop improved awareness of physical and mental wellbeing.

There was a phrase above the entrance to the royal chamber where books were stored by King Ramses II of Egypt. This chamber was considered to be the oldest known library motto in the world, it read: "House of Healing for the Soul." This will come as no surprise to regular readers that books were thought as healing even in Ancient Egypt. As Joseph Addison said ‘Reading is to the mind as exercise is to the body'. Reading increases our empathy, compassion and understanding. It reduces our blood pressure, calms us down, helps us get a good night's sleep and it gives us information to help us live more fulfilled lives. South Dublin Libraries have a continuous focus on health and well-being for everyone throughout the year. Apart from regular talks and displays on all health issues, we also have online resources available via our website. Consumer Health Complete (CHC), provided by EBSCO, is accessible using your library card and is the single most comprehensive resource for consumer-orientated health content. Check out Shelf Help, our new collection of 60 titles covering topics such as
low mood and depression, worry, stress and anxiety, general mental health and
wellbeing, addiction, parenting, relationships and social issues. The project was
initiated by Kildare County Libraries and Wicklow County Libraries and we are
delighted to have partnered with them. This capsule book collection was selected in
conjunction with experienced professionals from the Health Service Executive, South
West Regional Drugs Task Force and Mental Health Ireland. We wanted to make this
list the best possible resource for those needing help.
The collection of books will be held in each library location in the county. A wallet sized fold up leaflet with a selection of the titles, links to helpful sites, and other useful information is also available through libraries, community centres, GP practices, hospitals, health centres and chemists. Also check out ‘The Living Well' our series of lectures taking place from
November 2015 to April 2016 promoting health and wellbeing for positive living.
