Whole Health, Whole Self is a four-week program that looks at self-management using an integrated model that connects physical health and mental health. From this holistic perspective, the topics of mental health hygiene, physical movement, and nutrition will be discussed, along with how they overlap and can influence each other. In addition, participants will explore what is personally meaningful and motivating as it relates to their health. Elements of self-management principles and evidence-based mental hygiene practices are the foundation of this program. Sessions are interactive and session content along with additional information, resources, and self-reflective activities are included in a workbook provided to participants.

Workshop groups meet once a week for 2 hours, over four weeks. The workshop teaches skills for living a healthy life.

The workshop is led by two leaders who have taken the Peer Leader Training.

The training will take place entirely online and will be held over 6 days from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. You will need an internet connection to join. A tablet or computer would be recommended vs joining with a
mobile device.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
As a leader, you will have the satisfying task of integrating the contents of the program and learning group facilitation skills that can be transferred to other areas of your life. Most importantly, you will watch people affected by chronic conditions successfully manage their health conditions by using the skills and tools that you have shared with them.
How will the organization benefit?
As a volunteer you will enable us to provide the Whole Health, Whole Health across the Champlain region. The workshop is led by two leaders who have taken special training. The leaders are volunteers or health care professionals.
