Learn how to promote healthy habits within any organization: corporations, nonprofit agencies, churches, schools, colleges, the military and/or government agencies. Use top-down and bottom-up approaches synergistically to take advantage of the greatest untapped potential for health improvement: organizations, families and individuals. Change in organizational culture begins with individual change.
First, invite your organizational leaders (together with a family member) to improve the health of their family by taking the MHH online program. This learning process can help leaders understand better the complexity of behavior change. These experiences can help your organization to embrace the motto "We just don't use current evidence, we help you create your own personal evidence".
Thus, leadership buy-in and role modeling to organizational membership is the first essential step in developing a MHH culture. This groundwork sets the stage for:
- Enhancing the health of all organizational members and their families
- Disseminating the program to their clients, customers and/or patients
This executive group can appoint a MHH leadership team, with representatives from various stakeholders inside
(and even outside of) the organization.
The leaders can provide this team with resources
for implementing bottom-up approaches
that cater to the needs of the various
stakeholders and their family members.
The provision of mutual aid and self-help
approaches is the foundational strategy
for developing grassroots movements inside
and outside of their organization.
