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.
