Whole Health Action Management (WHAM) training is a peer-led program for people with chronic physical and behavioral health conditions that promotes self-management to create and sustain new health behavior.  Anyone can benefit from engaging in the WHAM process to improve health; the program is specifically designed to counter the high incidence of chronic physical health conditions - such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity - among people living with behavioral health conditions.

Participants will learn to:

  • Identify strengths and support in 10 science-based whole health and realistic factors
  • Develop a whole health goal-based plan
  • Create a weekly action plan log
  • Participate in peer support to create new health behaviors
  • Engage in cognitive skills to avoid negative thinking
