Living Life to the Full is an eight-session, 12-hour, evidence-based mental health promotion course. It was designed to help people deal with everyday life challenges by learning better self-management skills using cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) concepts and techniques. In this video, participants in Living Life to the Full talk about their experiences and the benefits of the program for older adults.
This video was produced as part of the Living Life to the Full for Older Adults pilot project (October 1, 2013 to March 31, 2015), which was funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care through the Healthy Communities Fund. The project was led by the Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario, in partnership with CMHA BC, Older Adult Centres’ Association of Ontario (OACAO), Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest, and York Institute for Health Research.
