HEALTHY LIVING

—by Paul M. Kubek

Learn to support health-behavior change among people with severe mental illness and addiction in your community, especially those who are not yet ready for change. Learn how to use the stages-of-change approach in your work, motivational interviewing, and tobacco interventions. Our Center is adding new dates to its "Breath of Fresh Air" training series and "Tobacco Tuesday" conference calls as part of Ohio's initiative to promote integrated primary and behavioral healthcare. Promote health living. Improve health outcomes.
