Holistic Health

YMCA of the Suncoast leadership appreciates every individual for being part of the staff team! We believe making wellness and health resources accessible is essential to support our employees' overall well-being.

This page will provide resources to practice self-care and explore support options for individual well-being and mental wellness. We focus on three primary aspects of well-being based on Christian values. These aspects are mind, body and spirit.

Mental Health Resources for Staff

Each individual on our staff, from first-time lifeguards to our seasoned leaders, will benefit from exploring the Y-USA Mental Health Tool kit and keeping it available. These resources are always available for staff members and include ways to connect with a trained support and/or crisis professional, in addition to daily mindfulness videos and well-being activities. Working at the YMCA is much more than just clocking in and out — we prioritize caring for one another and providing a safe environment.
