MHEALTHY is the University of Michigan's health and well-being program specially designed for faculty and staff. We provide programs and resources designed to help you be your best—physically, mentally and emotionally. By creating a community of health on our UM-Flint campus, we can make our community a place where healthy living is welcomed and supported.
Here are a few programs that will provide extra help for keeping you healthy and safe!
PRACTICE SAFER ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION – Seasonal events and holidays sometimes also include enjoying an alcoholic beverage or two. If you plan to drink alcohol, tips and resources are available to help you keep it in a safer, lower-risk range. Who knows, you may even decide to take a break from alcohol altogether! View tips on safe drinking.
