COPE embraces the World Health Organization of health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”


Community is critical to our overall wellbeing. The decline of connectedness is a widespread problem affecting our mental and physical health.

Public Health Policy Advocacy

Change happens not just because we know something, but because something about how we feel has shifted. That is why Peer Advocacy is the core of COPE's public policy work.


Screenings are medical tests that check for diseases and health conditions before there are any signs or symptoms. Screenings help find problems early on, when they may be easier to treat. Getting recommended screenings is one of the most important things you can do for your health.

Mindfulness & Well-Being

The mind-body connection is the belief that our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect how healthy our minds and bodies are.
