The Better Health Coaching Service has replaced the Get Healthy program in South Australia.
Similar to the Get Healthy Service, the Better Health Coaching Service is a confidential, telephone-based program designed to help South Australians be active, eat well and reduce the risk of chronic disease.
The program links eligible participants with a qualified health professional and provides up to 10 free coaching calls over six months.
The Better Health Coaching Service is free to South Australians aged between 18 and 74 years, with a BMI of 27 or more who are seeking support to build and maintain healthy lifestyle habits.
While the Better Health Coaching Service will not have a specific pregnancy module, the health coaches will be able to provide modified advice to eligible South Australians who are pregnant.
To find out if you’re eligible, talk to your GP of health professional about options that are best for you.
If you’re ineligible to participate in the Better Health Coaching Service, talk to your GP or health professional about options that are best for you. For tips on how to build healthy habits into your day, visit the Wellbeing SA website:
