Feedback from WHAM Graduates, Outcomes, and Sustaining Funding for a Peer Program

Date and Time: Monday, October 6, 2:30-4:00pm Eastern/11:30am-1:00pm Pacific

Register for free at

Join us for our first conversation with Whole Health Action Management (WHAM) graduates about their implementation successes, challenges, and insights. Learn the first research outcomes from implementing peer whole health services delivered by WHAM-trained peer coaches and discuss how to sustain funding of those services with a state Medicaid expert. Get tips on how to maximize implementation of this science-based curriculum developed by the SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS).


The 2-day training prepares peer providers employed by behavioral health and community health organizations to facilitate WHAM groups to support activation of self-management through the development of weekly action plans to create new health habits and achieve person-centered whole health goals. The training also teaches basic health screens for prevention and skills for shared decision-making with health professionals.


Presenters: Charles Willis, Certified Peer Specialist and Peer Whole Health Workforce Director, Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network; Wendy Tiegreen, Director of Medicaid Coordination and Health Systems Innovation, Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities; Hal Hamaker, Lead Navigator, Bienstar Program, Monterey County Health Department; and Larry Fricks, Deputy Director, SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions at the National Council.

Learn more about setting up a WHAM training.
