What is the “Living a Healthy Life” workshop?

Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions is a six-week self-management workshop that brings together people with different chronic diseases to learn to manage common challenges like pain, fatigue, and difficult emotions. Most importantly it is about empowerment, gaining the skills needed in the day-to-day management of a chronic condition and learning to maintain and/or increase life’s activities. It is widely considered a best practice in chronic disease self-management and has been adopted in many parts of Canada and around the world.
