FREE Webinar: Taking Action for Whole Health and Wellbeing
Tuesday, February 27 at 2pm ET/1pm CT/12pm MT/11am PT
The Copeland Center's Taking Action for Whole Health & Wellbeing course is a co-facilitated group process that supports individuals in creating a personalized system for recovering, sustaining, and/or improving their whole health outcomes and enhancing their lifestyle.
The curriculum is based on the US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration's (SAMHSA) Taking Action curriculum and other recovery publications developed with input from individuals with lived experience of recovery from mental health, addictions, and co-occurring challenges. The topics, practices, and approaches in this program have demonstrated effectiveness through various research studies and with input from care providers. The Copeland Center's Taking Action for Whole Health & Wellbeing program combines key curriculum topics with evidence-based and experiential-based peer-to-peer strategies.
Taking Action for Whole Health and Wellbeing is a curriculum led by two peer co-facilitators trained in the Copeland Center's process for evidence-based, and experiential-based peer strategies. Co-facilitator's training incorporates over two decades of peer-based experience and evidenced-based engagement strategies such as Self-Directed Care, Wellness Self-management, Motivation Theory, and Peer Support.
