Creating a Healthier Maine
Healthy Living for ME® (HL4ME®) is helping communities across Maine create a culture of health, where prevention and wellness are the norm. Our programs give you the tools you need to take control of your own health and manage in a way that works best for you and your life. Healthy Living for ME programs provide education, fitness instruction, self-care strategies, health promotion activities, social care coordination, and more for participants; they do not replace clinical care provided by doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals. Our services help people across the state experience improved wellness and quality of life.
What are “evidence-based” education programs?
Evidence-based education programs are developed and verified by researchers to promote self-management of chronic health conditions, prevent falls, caregiver support, and foster individual well-being, and more.
Healthy Living for ME partnerships ensure the quality, coordination and local delivery of Healthy Living for ME services. Our partners include healthcare providers, health plans, housing providers, community-based organizations, insurers, and others all dedicated to improving the health of the communities we serve — together.
HL4ME invites all to get involved with the network. Through network involvement, HL4ME partners receive support to effectively deliver services to communities across Maine including access and inclusion for all Mainers.
If you are interested in bringing additional social services to your community, we welcome you to join. Joining the network is free and there are multiple ways to get involved. We offer statewide trainings and ongoing support to assist with service implementation and quality of service needs.
No matter how you would like to get involved, HL4ME is here to support the changing needs of our partners and communities. Come join us as we continue to provide services that are creating a healthier Maine, one Mainer at a time.
