My Health for Life
My health for life (MH4L) is a free behaviour change program designed for people at high risk of developing a chronic disease, and shows participants that making small lifestyle changes can have major health benefits.
The MH4L program works in partnership with GPs and other clinical services, providing patients an opportunity to participate in an evidence-based lifestyle modification program in their local community.
