Living Well with a Disability is an evidence-based program that began with the Rural Institute at the University of Montana. It is a 10-session, peer facilitated program that promotes healthy living. Disability Network Capital Area has a number of trained peer facilitators and has been facilitating the program for quite some time, often with help from some very important community partners.
What to Expect
This 10-session class is often provided within the community. The schedule of classes is determined by the individuals themselves. For example, it might be decided that the group will meet once a week or perhaps twice a week; depending on the schedule and needs of the participants. Examples of where the classes may be held include:
- On-site at the main Disability Network Capital Area office
- Apartment buildings
- Community Centers
- Goal setting
- Problem solving
- Healthy communication
- Healthy reactions
- Physical fitness and nutrition
- And much more!
