Marc’s Health and Wellness program focuses on individuals with mental illness who also have or are at risk for a chronic medical illness. Physical and behavioral health professionals agree that providing better integration and coordination of care is the primary solution in this circumstance. Integrated care is a service that coordinates physical and behavioral health services to more fully address the spectrum of problems that individuals bring to their primary medical care/behavioral health providers. Based on the simple premise that people can choose healthier lifestyles when the services are conveniently available, customized to each individual, and connected with the person’s other physical and mental health services.
Health and Wellness includes certified Wellness Specialists and trained peer wellness coaches who perform fitness assessments and coach individuals in their personal fitness goals in order to improve their ability to perform activities of daily living and manage physical health conditions. Areas people may choose to focus include physical activities, chronic disease management, nutrition, use of Wellness Coach’s knowledge and meeting new people.
