Walking a Balanced Path is a health and wellness program designed for First Nations health organizations and other community organizations supporting First Nation participants to make lifestyle changes to strengthen personal and family wellness. Developed by the Department of Community Development and Outreach at Capilano University, it is designed to help individuals improve literacy and essential skills while learning more about health and wellness, and is intended to provide health workers and community groups with tools to use in existing programs.


It includes 10 training modules that look at health holistically:

  • Personal, family and community wellness
  • Understanding chronic illness
  • Traditional healing
  • Emotional wellness
  • Building family and community through food
  • Cultural safety in health care
  • Managing your medications
  • Active living
  • Mindful eating
  • Community gardens

There is both a training manual for participants and a facilitator’s guide. To borrow both the training manual and the facilitator’s guide, email library@decoda.ca.
