The Buddy System is on your own schedule! Become a client's health-buddy by befriending, supporting and empowering each other during times of need while off-schedule from the client's program. The client will already be committed to a Fitness, Nutrition and/or Mental Health professional for a set number of hours each month. In addition, the client is case managed by his/her Case Manager who tracks measured progress and remains in strong contact with both the client and all of his/her professionals.
The Buddy's job is required to only be in contact with the client at two hours per month minimum and is not to contact any of the assigned professionals; the Buddy is the trustworthy friend. Examples of activities a Buddy may do with the client are going for a walk, being active/doing physical activity, eating a healthy meal together, assisting in a progressive/healthy decision or go grocery shopping together. The two hold each other accountable to an active, positive, more healthy lifestyle when he/she is not engaged in Health Possible program sessions.
Students Learning Wellness is our youth after school support group held on campuses in New Hanover County Schools. It is a private learning and activity environment that cannot be attended by students who do not attend the campus it is being held on. This youth support group also requires RSVP/Sign Ups within the school's point of contact for the program.
SLW is two-three days per week for four-eight weeks and can only be held at one school at a time. Health Possible Inc. will rotate around New Hanover County Schools through each Summer per school requests. It is led by HPI Case Managers and supported by the assistance of volunteers, whom we prefer to remain consistent for students familiarity and relationships - however is not required to be involved.
