The Cockburn Healthy Lifestyle Service (CHLS) helps individuals manage their nutritional, physical and mental wellbeing needs. It was initially established in 2017 to help address the significant rates of overweight and obesity observed within the City of Cockburn. Overtime, the number and types of services provided under CHLS has expanded to promote and support a more holistic approach to healthy living to help people of all ages achieve long-term health and lifestyle goals. Whether you are interested in eating healthier, increasing your fitness, reducing stress, losing weight or enhancing your overall health, we can assist you to find a suitable program within our service.
The CHLS service offers a free/low-cost and coordinated approach to nutrition education, physical activity and fitness, mental health, and child specific services. Support is offered to all clients through personalised programs that are connected to local health service providers across the City of Cockburn.
The service provides free health consults conducted by an allied health professional. It is a requirement before participating in any component of the Cockburn Healthy Lifestyle Service that a client has an initial health consult. Health consults assess nutritional, physical and mental well-being status and enable a tailored plan to be created, specific to individual’s needs. Clients are then required to attend a health consult every two months over a 12-month period to ensure that their needs are being met.
It is a requirement of the CHLS that prior to registering into a program, a client attends an initial health consult.
