COMMUNITY OUTREACH & MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS
Empowering COMMUNITIES through meditation, mindfulness & creative Leadership
ARTS FOR MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS
We run art, creative, active recreation and wellbeing programs predominantly aimed
at empowering individuals and community groups to enhance the social fabric and
cohesion of communities, developing skills, capacity, confidence & resilience during
times of hardship and crisis.
We are currently developing a mental health recovery program for LGA’s who have
been adversely affected by the impact of crisis such as the 2019-20 Bushfires & COVID-19 Pandemic.
The aim is to implement a series of empowering workshops, seminars and programs to mitigate the ongoing mental health issues arising from adversity, supporting recovery, and contributing to the revival of individual's lives, and communities.
The program includes a series of workshops such as:
Meditation & Mindfulness for Mental Health
Holistic Creative Therapy and Artistic Workshops
Healthy and Active Lifestyle Mentoring & Workshops for building resilience & wellbeing
Small Business Development Workshops and Training for local business owners to increase business and employment opportunities, in turn contributing to positive health outcomes and empowering them to accomplish their goals.
Designed to provide participants with a safe space to express themselves and explore their emotions, release stress, tension & anxiety, build social support networks and cohesion among peers, and provide opportunities for deep self-inquiry and personal development. Supported and backed by substantial evidence and research surrounding the efficacy and power of meditation and holistic integrated creative art therapy activities such as sound therapy, drama, dance, visual arts, etc. to reduce stress, depression & anxiety, help people to express emotions in a safe and non-judgmental space, deal with grief, loss & trauma, build social cohesion & support networks and greatly improve the lives and wellbeing of individuals and communities.
