Nurse and Peer Teams Coaching People with Comorbidities

Date: Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Time: 2:00 PM EDT

Webinar participants learned about Coaching to Wellness, a program for mental health consumers with comorbid health conditions in Contra Costa County, California. Funded by the Mental Health Services Act, Coaching to Wellness provides an additional level of care through intensive peer and nurse support. Now in its second year and expanded across the county, the program provides a holistic team approach to support consumers in learning self-management and wellness tools. During the webinar, participants heard from a nurse and peer provider team about their experiences including successes and challenges. From this webinar, participants developed an understanding of the importance of peer support in recovery; learned about strategies and activates to support persons with comorbid health conditions; and heard discussions about the successes and barriers to implementation.
