Chronic Care Support Networks

Description

Support networks are a great resource for people to maintain control over their chronic health condition(s) and to share and receive information based off of the experience of peers. Examples of chronic conditions include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, COPD, etc. Using Motivational Interviewing and evidence-based practices like the Stanford Self-Management Model, MHA’s Community Health Workers guide participants in techniques that help promote thoughtful decision-making practices that impact daily and long-term lifestyle changes. Participants in past support networks report the following components of the group as valuable:
    • Shared experiences with other local residents
    • Gave and received support
    • Connection to community resources
    • Learned and practiced mindful breathing skills
    • Education on healthy eating
    • Focused exercise
    • Personalized time with a hypertension specialist
Our goal with chronic care support groups is to encourage peer connections and empower individuals to take accountability for their condition and decisions.
MHA is currently accepting sign-ups/referrals for the next Support Network. If you are interested in joining, please contact us at (707) 412-3176 x103 or email [email protected]
