Better Health Self-Management is a free practical skills workshop for anyone with chronic health conditions. The program is designed to help you manage your health better and can make a real difference if you are:

  • concerned about managing your health in the future
  • wanting to manage your symptoms better
  • not sure if your doctor and healthcare team are listening to your needs
  • feeling worried or depressed because of your health issues
  • lacking the energy to get through your day
  • looking to speak with someone who has faced similar health issues.

The workshop is for adults living with any type of chronic health condition, such as:

  • arthritis
