Health & Wellness Initiative

Introducing Our Health and Wellness Initiative!

Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. Wellness is the intentional development of the whole self, a process of searching for tools to make you healthier and happier and to equip you for continued growth and development.  As part of Girl Scouts of Suffolk County's commitment to our girls and their families, below are activities and resources to support you on your Journey of self-care. 

Resources for All Levels
