Healthy Living Course


Mendonoma Health Alliance has brought the power and knowledge of leading health education right to the Mendonoma community through our evidence-based Healthy Living Courses. The six-week courses were designed by Stanford University’s Self-Management Resource Center. Throughout each course, participants learn skills that build confidence and success for long-term management of health and medical conditions. Each course is open to people of all ages and is free to attend. Participants are provided with the course book and materials needed in order to be successful. Participants are required to attend all six classes, which are scheduled once per week for 2.5 hours, and will be expected to do group brainstorming and work one-on-one with other participants.
Local graduates have reported that the classes helped them feel supported in their journey to a healthier life, that they became more aware of community resources as a result of engaging and that they learned skills that are easily applied to various other challenges in life.

With each of the Healthy Living Courses, it is Mendonoma Health’s goal to assist participants in developing peer connections and to empower individuals to take charge of managing their chronic condition(s).
The courses are offered at a location within Mendonoma Health Alliance’s Service Area. To pre-enroll and save a seat on the waiting list, simply submit your name and contact information using the registration link below.
Each program is provided for full-time and part-time residents of Irish Beach, Manchester, Point Arena, Gualala, The Sea Ranch, Stewarts Point, Timber Cove and the coastal Cazadero community. We are accepting out-of-the-area sign ups that represent up to 10% of class participants at this time.
