"I'm writing on behalf of myself and my special needs son, who cannot write for himself. We want you to know how grateful  we are that we were allowed to attend this class. We have learned so much and will carry it with us the rest of our lives. We will continue to apply what we learned, such as the "Action Plan."  It can be used in so many ways and areas of our lives. I have seen changes in myself, my son and my daughter who attended these classes; furthermore, I just want to say these classes have had such a positive outcome that my daughter is researching and considering a future job in this field. The teachers were knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly. Thank you very much for helping my family."  

Nutrition Education Workshop participant


"I signed up for the workshop in an effort to be a better care provider for my sister. I have found the workshop to be very helpful. The topics varied and the group input has been an added benefit . I have come to a better understanding and empathy for persons suffering from major depression and other illness or injury that has caused suffering. The setting of even the smallest action change can be overwhelming for some. The workshop has given me the "permission" I have needed to not lose my "self" in the care taking process. In closing I would like to say thank you to you and Shasta Community Health for providing a much needed service."

Diabetes Self-Management Workshop participant

"This class has helped a lot. I was reluctant to come and during the first class I really did not think I would use the information I was getting, or it would not teach me anything I didn't already know. I was wrong!! It has helped me a lot and made me more open to new ideas. " 

Healthier Living Workshop participant

Diabetes Self-Management Workshop Participant 

“I didn’t think this class was right for me. However, as a recovering addict, I benefited from this class. During my recovery from my personal illness and addiction, I forgot about the simple things in life that make a huge difference. During this class I made weekly action plans, kept a food journal and meditated daily. I was able to start working full time and excel at my job because I was taking care of my health. The things we’ve learned were simple enough to remember, yet were life changing lessons to live by.”
