Welcome to our Health Matters Program, funded by the Cigna Foundation!

Health Matters is a mind and body wellness program developed by AHM’s Leadership, Mental Health, and Prevention Team and funded by the Cigna Foundation. Residents of all ages from Andover, Hebron, Marlborough, and Columbia are invited to participate.

AHM and the Cigna Foundation believe participation in healthy programming is the best way to reduce risk factors for mental illness and substance abuse in youth, families, and our communities. We are very fortunate to have grant funding to provide this level of programming.

In-person programming will continue in the Winter in our beautiful Wellness Room! Check back for updates on classes, workshops & activities that will be offered in this next phase focusing on “The Family”.

Register today for the activities and workshops that align with your interests and schedule.

AHM reserves the right to cancel a class 24 hours prior to class time, due to low enrollment.
