In SHAPE

Description:

Even with appropriate therapy and psychotropic drugs, individuals with severe and persistent mental illness often have reduced longevity and quality of life due to smoking, obesity, hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This program will enroll adults with mental illness in community wellness activities such as exercise and dance classes, weight loss programs, and smoking cessation. In SHAPE has been a successful pilot program in Keene, NH and will now offer these services to more than 300 individuals in the surrounding 35 towns.
