Take the PATH to Lay Leader Certification

The PATH workshop meets once a week for 6 weeks for 2 ½ hours each week. Workshops are facilitated by two leaders, one or both of whom may have a chronic condition. People with chronic conditions attend the workshop and learn skills to improve their health, such as:
  • Techniques to deal with pain, fatigue and depression 
  • Healthy eating 
  • How to communicate effectively with family, friends and professional 

  • Trained leaders must agree to facilitate at least one six-week PATH workshop within six months of training and one workshop year to maintain certification as an active leader. 
  • You must attend all 4 days of training and successfully complete two practice  teach activities. 
  • You must be associated with an agency that has a license to provide PATH.
