Program Description Taken from The First Step Act Approved Program Guide 1/2022 The Wellness: Inside and Out program is a fully scripted curriculum with workbooks and an administrator manual. This program will present and build upon the Eight Dimensions of Wellness. Additionally, the curriculum will integrate 5 areas of concentration to include: assessments of needs, social inclusion, interaction, self-assessment, services upon release, and identified coping mechanisms.

The Wellness: Inside and Out program will target individuals who bring both physical and mental health problems to prison by offering skill-building lessons and specific goals. Using these skills, participants will begin to educate themselves and make changes in their behavior. The goal-oriented programming will also build skills that translate into successful reentry, helping former inmates avoid future incarceration.

Employees should consult the program material for the length and duration of the class. Program materials and updated SENTRY codes are located under the FSA Programs link on the Reentry Services Division Sallyport page.
