The LiveWell Program© is designed to educate, inspire, and empower YOU to take control of your own depression treatment and ongoing mental health care.  

What is LiveWell?

BY the people, FOR the people.

Our program design (backed by science!) 

 

Scientific research shows that peer-led interventions score better than  psychotherapy for depression recovery, offering greater levels of self‐efficacy, empowerment, and engagement. 

Our innovative and effective behavioral health program rotates around the LiveWell Strategies:  ten evidence-based wellness strategies that are each proven to help reduce symptoms and relapses of depression, and to increase wellbeing.

 Our peer-led supportive community   

 

We get it: because we've been there; we've come through it; and we know what we have to do stay well. Our confidential support groups are led by trained, volunteer peer facilitators: people from diverse backgrounds and professions with lived experience of depression, recovery, and living well.
