FAIRFIELD — Catholic Charities Maine’s Behavioral Health Network plans to begin Living Well with Better Health, a six-week workshop series starting Thursday, Oct. 6, at 66 Western Ave.

The series presents strategies to manage health conditions and improve overall health and wellness.

Working with Healthy Living for ME, the Fairfield Behavioral Health Network location will co-facilitate this interactive group workshop series, which is designed to teach participants how to identify, develop and pursue personal health and wellness goals in a safe, inclusive environment, according to a news release from Catholic Charities Maine’s Behavioral Health Network.

The goal of the workshops, which take place every Thursday from 9 to 11:30 a.m. from Oct. 6 to Nov. 10, is to empower participants to increase self-efficacy and improve knowledge and beliefs around condition management, leading to positive behavior change and improved self-management of health conditions and related symptoms.

Led by two mental health experts, this series is ideal for adults with any health conditions, especially those with multiple chronic conditions, individuals with increasing health risks, and those seeking group support.

Caregivers, friends, and family members are also welcomed to participate to support their loved ones.
