19 Wing Health Promotion

19 Wing Health Promotion

The Strengthening the Forces (STF) Health Promotion program gives Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members, their families and members of the Defense community, information, skills and tools to enhance their mental, physical and social health and wellbeing. 19 Wing Health Promotion not only offers briefings and courses, we also move beyond the individual and examine social and environmental influences on health behaviour.

Whether you’re looking at ways to create a supportive environment, or how to make the healthy choice the easy choice, Health Promotion can work with you to identify individual, interpersonal, organizational and policy level opportunities to enhance your health or health within your unit.

STF focuses on 4 main areas:
  • Nutrition Wellness
  • Injury Prevention and Active Living
  • Addiction Awareness & Prevention
  • Social Wellness
To find out more, we invite you to explore this website further or contact the Health Promotion Office.
