Whole Health Action Management (WHAM) promotes whole health self-management and strengthens the peer workforce’s role in integrated healthcare delivery.

WHAM prepares the peer workforce to use person-centered planning to set achievable whole health goals and weekly action plans to create new health behavior by engaging in weekly WHAM groups. It also teaches basic health screens for prevention and shared decision making with health professionals.

Founded on researched chronic disease self-management programs such as HARP (Health and Recovery Peer Program) and science-based health and resiliency factors, like the Relaxation Response, WHAM was designed by peers for peers in recovery from mental illnesses and substance use disorders.
