Healthy Minds Healthy Bodies

Healthy Minds Healthy Bodies: a peer approach is a signature program from Montana’s Peer Network that provides education around the importance of whole health wellness, trauma informed care and peer support. We do this by providing interactive workshops, webinars and through the use of social media. Our workshops are led by individuals in recovery from a mental health diagnosis who bring their own unique perspective to wellness. Together with attendees they will explore the mind body connection and the importance of overall well-being for successful recovery.

8 Dimensions of Wellness

HMHB takes you through each of the 8 Dimensions of Wellness from evaluation to implementation. Worksheets and activities help you define the areas that you would like to work on and how to set goals in each dimension.

SMART Goal Setting

SMART Goals Are:

  • Specific: narrowing the goal makes it easier to do
  • Measurable: allows you to see your progress
  • Attainable: don’t set yourself up for failure, set yourself up for success
  • Relevant: make it a goal YOU want to do for your own wellness
  • Timely: start with short term goals, so you are not tempted to give up before you see change

HMHB Project was funded from 2013-2015 by SAMHSA via a Statewide Consumer Networking Grant #1H79SM061322-01
