Act Heal

What is Act Heal?

As part of the Healthy Community Building Initiatives, Active Living for a Healthy Community or Act-Heal is an initiative designed to promote the physical, emotional and mental health for all.

Launched in 2006, the program offers physical and healthy living activities to adults and seniors from culturally diverse communities.

The program cultivates experiential learning among the individuals-in-need through multiple practices, resources and tools to educate and empower themselves in each aspect of life. Over a decade, the program has been supported by the Central West Local Health Integration Network in partnership with Bramalea Community Health Centre (BCHC) and the Brampton Library. The program has impacted well-being of 13496+ seniors.

The program combines several techniques from:

    • Yoga
    • Tai-chi
    • Pranayama
    • Music and dance
    • Group activities
    • Nature walks
    • Art and crafts
    • Memory games

to a variety of other mindful and attention augmenting practices and activities. Additionally, the clients are educated on self-paced, techniques and mindfulness exercises.

We invite you to experience the Act-Heal program in your community, workplace, group or any other setting. The program can be fully customized to serve all types of needs ranging from generic well-being to domains of physical, emotional, psychological and cognitive well-being.
