Whole Health Action Management (WHAM) is a peer-centered program developed by the National Council’s SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions to promote whole health self-management for those living with chronic physical and behavioral health challenges. Peers are encouraged to partner and identify strengths, develop weekly action plans and work together using positive reinforcement to meet a goal.

Rather than work alone, WHAM encourages participants to collaborate and support others’ efforts and is easy to use and implement in health care settings.
