HEAL™ Delivery Guide

A guide that aims to assist existing, newly trained and prospective HEAL™ facilitators to get HEAL™ programs up and running is now available. The HEAL™ Delivery Guide features a selection of profiles and perspectives from other facilitators who have delivered HEAL™ in different locations and settings across Australia. The profiles provide insight into some of the different approaches and strategies that have been taken to successfully deliver HEAL™ ‘on the ground’, including flexible approaches to deliver HEAL™ while addressing participant health needs.
