We offer ways to help you or your family manage weight and improve your lifestyle.
The Cockburn Healthy Lifestyle Service (CHLS) commenced in June, 2017 as a means to address the significant rates of overweight and obesity within the City of Cockburn. Figures from 2016 indicate that the rate of overweight and obesity among those aged over 16 years within the City was 79.0%, as compared to the overall state rate of 66.6% (South Metropolitan Health Service, 2019). Excess weight, particularly obesity, is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, some musculoskeletal conditions and certain cancers.
The CHLS aims to help people of all ages achieve long-term health, lifestyle and weight-loss goals. The service offers a 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 Cockburn area.
