About My health for life
My health for life is a free, six-month program where you work with a health coach to achieve your health goals.

It is a State government-funded initiative, delivered by an alliance of health organisations, and is designed to help Queenslanders stay well and lessen their risk of developing conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Choosing either small group sessions, or one-on-one phone coaching, you explore topics such as nutrition, physical activity, understanding your personal risk of developing health conditions and how to make healthier choices a part of everyday life.

With the support of your coach, you will also develop an action plan. Whether your goal is to get more active, eat better, stress less, or lose weight, the focus is on building a step-by-step plan to help you achieve your goals over time.

How to get involved

Start with the online health check to see if you are eligible to participate. If you feel it would be of benefit having a family member or friend attend, please contact My health for life to discuss prior to group sessions.

Community groups play an important role in advocating and supporting healthier communities. If your organisation is hosting a community event, contact My health for life to see if there is an opportunity for us to conduct free risk assessments. Have a question? Call our 13 RISK number (13 74 75).
