In SHAPE began through a Center for Disease Control (CDC) grant which was conducted through Dartmouth Medical School and is now being offered to CSP consumers as a Functional Support Service. It is aimed at improving the physical health and quality of life of people with serious mental illness. The In Shape staff are trained to address the symptoms and functional impairment affecting a consumer's ability to manage his/her health, wellness, fitness, and nutrition. The staff work in collaboration with the multidisciplinary recovery team to provide health and wellness services to individuals on the various teams. Each consumer works with the In Shape staff to develop a Health Action Plan to provide motivation and focus on the desired goal.
Consumers are eligible to participate if the following apply:
