Welcome to Self-Management BC

Covid-19 is certainly having an impact on British Columbians!
As you can appreciate, during this time when social distancing is so important, Self-Management BC is unable to offer in-person group programs. However, we are very excited to offer programs that can be done online, by telephone or independently:

  • Better Choices, Better Health Online Self-Management Program (web-based)
  • Health Coach Program (one-to-one telephone-based)
  • Tool Kit for Active Living with Chronic Conditions Program (one-time mailed package)
  • Tool Kit for Active Living with Chronic Conditions + Telephone Calls Program (Tool Kit materials and small-group conference calls)
Click here for a brief description of these programs.  
Please be aware that Self-Management BC is currently working hard to get these programs up and running but there may be a delay of a few weeks before you can start.
To be added to our contact list to be notified when these programs are available, call (toll-free) 1-866-902-3767 or email with your first and last name, phone number, city, and program of choice. 
Thank you for your interest in Self-Management BC's programs!

Self-Management Programs
Persons with chronic health conditions and family members can participate in self-management programs offered in communities throughout BC at no cost. These are evidence-based programs that provide information, teach practical skills and give people the confidence to manage their health condition(s). A summary of self-management program activity in British Columbia for 2016 can be downloaded here. You can view a video of Dr. Aaron Leppin of the Mayo Clinic discussing "well care" and the importance of self-management programs.
Self-Management Support
