Community Center for Health & Wellness

Everyone with CF or has someone in their family with CF knows the stress that can accompany having a chronic illness.

Here is a program worth checking into

Community Center for Health & Wellness

The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology’s initiative to be of meaningful support and service to the community informs the Center’s overall mission, and is realized through meaningful collaboration with other community health providers.

One example of this commitment is the relationship between The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (ITP) and Stanford School of Medicine Center for Education in Family and Community Medicine/Peter Judge Cystic Fibrosis Quality of Life Program. The goal of this program is to improve the quality of life for those who face Cystic Fibrosis every day, including giving assistance to caregivers and family members. This program offers help with such life skills as time-management, effective communication, self-advocacy, and help with issues related to stress, anger, grief, and loneliness.
