EveryBody Live Well
An initiative of Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District’s Division of Population Health. We provide information to help improve the health and wellbeing of people and the communities they live in. This information is:
- quality-assured and reliable
- locally relevant
- easy to understand
The information on our site aims to help people understand the importance of staying well and adopting or maintaining a healthy lifestyle. While from time to time it may provide information about some medical conditions, it does not replace care provided by medical practitioners or other qualified health professionals.
We are fully funded by the Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District, with no commercial advertising or corporate sponsorship.
A wide range of information
Our content reflects the wide range of health interests and needs in the community across the life span. It is based on:
- national and state health priorities
- current and emerging local health issues
- findings from evidence based research
- information that people have requested
Information you can trust
We use a rigorous approval process to develop and review for our content. This includes consultation and input from local subject matter and clinical experts, overview by the EveryBody Live Well Project Editorial team, and review by NSW Health where necessary. We aim to ensure that all information is current and remove material that is no longer relevant.
Linking to other sites
We don’t want to reinvent the wheel, and we know that there is a lot of good health information already available. We frequently link to sites which share our philosophy for health and wellness, and which originate from government, educational and other not-for-profit health or other credible health-related organisations, and which benefit our local communities.
