  • Self-referral – just contact a member of our Aspen PCN Allied Health Staff.

Please Note:  If you are experiencing moderate to severe depression, moderate to severe anxiety, or a recent bereavement, this program may not be appropriate for you at this time.   We can help though, and invite you to contact the Health Home Office nearest to you (info below) so we can assess your individual needs and plan services to meet those needs.

Your Commitment
  • To attend, as far as possible, each week for 2 hours per week.
  • To do the weekly homework (it’s fun) which provides you the opportunity to practice the sk​ills and take control of your personal state of happiness.
