Self awareness is the ability to recognize oneself as an individual separate from others and the world-at-large.
There are a few ways that people can become more self aware. One is to simply observe oneself and pay attention to emotions and thoughts as they occur. This can be done by keeping a journal, where people can write down their thoughts and feelings on a daily basis.
Another way to become more self aware is to practice meditation or mindfulness. This involves focusing on the present moment and accepting all of the sensations that are experienced without judgement.
Finally, people can also become more self aware by engaging in self-reflection. This means taking time to think about how one has reacted in various situations, and trying to understand why. It can also involve thinking about choices that were made in the past and how they might have influenced current feelings or behaviour. Self-reflection is a therapeutic tool, as it gives people the chance to learn more about their emotions and why they feel certain ways.
In April 2009, a group of community stakeholders met to address the needs of the uninsured residents of Cumberland County. Their commitment to our needs led them to form what is now, Cumberland HealthNET (CHN). CHN is a collaborative network of community organizations whose primary focus is to improve the health outcomes for the uninsured in Cumberland County by linking them with a medical home, as well as other needed health and community services.
Through its collaboration with seventeen other county and community organizations, Cumberland HealthNET seeks to improve access to care for the uninsured, improve coordination of services, provide needs assessments, identity overlaps and gaps in the services provided, provide community education and resources, advocate on behalf of the uninsured, and leverage and develop outside financial resources to support the work in Cumberland County through the following programs: Health Information, Well-Being Information, Housing & Homelessness Services, Insurance Information including qualification information, ACA Insurance, and CHN Insurance, COVID-19 Vaccination Program, Our Health Clinic, help with finding a medical professional, case management, prescription assistance, mental health assistance and nutrition information.
