Mental Health Greensboro offers free support services to individuals facing mental health challenges as well as those looking to maintain mental wellness. Our WHAM class meets weekly on Wednesdays for 12 weeks from 1-3pm beginning March 11th.
Whole Health Action Management (WHAM) is a peer-led intervention for people with chronic health and behavioral health conditions that activates self-management to create and sustain new health behavior. WHAM aims to counter the high incidence of chronic physical health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity among people living with mental illnesses and addictions. Through facilitated sessions focused on setting strengths based whole health goals, WHAM participants learn to:
-Identify strengths and supports in 10 science-based whole health and resiliency factors.
-Write a concise whole health goal based on person-centered planning.
-Create and log a weekly action plan.
-Participate in peer support to create new health behavior
-Elicit the Relaxation Response
-Engage in cognitive skills to avoid negative thinking.
-Prepare for basic whole health screenings.
-Use shared decision making skills and tools for engaging with doctors.
