Quest CHC hosts many different health and wellness programs. Group programming ranges from chronic disease management to mental health to health promotion. All groups are free. Some are for registered Quest CHC clients (e.g. Skills to Cope, Healthy You, Craving Change, and Healthy Choices to Recovery), while others are open to individuals from the community (e.g. Smoking Cessation, Chronic Disease Self-Management, and Trans Youth Group).
