Supporting mental health and wellbeing
Wellbeing SA undertakes a range of other work to support the mental wellbeing of the South Australian community, in addition to our work on suicide prevention and bushfire recovery.
This includes actively engaging with the South Australian community to co-design and develop initiatives and strategies that respond to the community’s mental health and wellbeing needs.
We have a number of important partnerships and sponsorships that allow us to broaden the reach and impact of our work. These include:
- providing support, and working collaboratively with South Australia’s Mental Health Commissioners
- supporting the Lived Experience Leadership and Advocacy Network, linking people with lived experience to advocacy and representative opportunities
- supporting international students, the South Australian LGBTQIA+ community and South Australian senior citizens through our specialised community advisory groups
- working in partnership with the Mental Health Coalition and SA Health to design and support a program of events for Mental Health Month held in October each year.
