Wellbeing Program

To enjoy life and cope with its many challenges we all need to take care of our physical, mental and social health. 

The Wellbeing program provides people from multicultural communities with the information and resources they may need to look after their own and their family's wellbeing in the context of life in Australia. 

Information and activities that focus on mind, body and relationships are offered.

Through education sessions, we aim to increase people's awareness and understanding of mental health issues.

Open discussions about common mental health and wellbeing issues are held, aiming to break down the stigma around mental illness and give people the confidence to seek help.

Harmony Place Wellbeing Program

Enjoy life

To enjoy life and cope with its many challenges we need to take care of our physical, mental and social health. The Wellbeing program provides people with information and practical strategies they can take away and apply in their daily lives.  Information about how to access services and resources when help is needed is provided. 

Free education sessions combined with fun activities that focus on mind, body and relationships .can be delivered at a place that is convenient for your clients or organisation.  We can organise interpreters if required by participants.

The sessions consist of a one hour and 15 minute presentation and discussion covering a specific topic followed by an hour-long fun activity that offers practical ways of improving wellbeing in everyday life.  

We can run the whole program or you can choose the sessions that meet your groups needs. Then mix and match the education sessions with the activities.
