The InSHAPE Program kicked off here in Arlington in May 2016. InSHAPE is a health promotion program providing fitness , nutrition, and habit coaching to adults with serious mental illness. At present, the program serves 25 adults, all of whom are making measurable progress in developing habits of healthy living through community and agency-based support.
How it works
Each client meets weekly with a health mentor to work collaboratively on a variety of health-related goals. Through the program, clients have support in accessing and building sustainable relationships with an array of community resources, including the Department of Parks and Recreation facilities, several local grocery stores, Arlington Public Schools pools, Phoenix Bikes and others.
We are always looking for new community partners and creative ways to support our clients’ ongoing success in living healthy, active lives. There has been extensive interest in the program, and it is our hope to serve many more clients in coming months.
